Mark Van Doren
The Nation

The film as a whole means no more than Charlie Chaplin means. Nobody has ever been able to say what that is, but by the present showing it is something quite timeless and priceless, and more human than the best of alien words lugged in for definition.

One of the many remarkable things about Charlie Chaplin is that his films continue to hold up, to attract and delight audiences.

The opening sequence in Chaplin's second Depression masterpiece, of the Tramp on the assembly line, is possibly his greatest slapstick encounter with the 20th century.

The picture is grand fun and sound entertainment, though silent. It's the old Chaplin at his best, looking at his best -- young, pathetic and a very funny guy.

Chaplin's political and philosophical naivety now seems as remarkable as his gift for pantomime.

Finds the comedy in the dashing of hopes, though it has both the verve to be funny for funny's sake when it feels the urge and the fortitude not to tidy up every dark stroke.
