"Charlie Chaplin, in anything, is b.o., and in “Modern Times,” his first self-starring production in five years, it’s box office with a capital B. 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. He remains the world’s No. 1 pantomimist, and the greatest panto artist since the Frenchman Severin."
