    "Talk about one of the classic. Charlie Chaplin in his prime. This movie is such a great piece of comedy that transcends the years. Chaplin and his amazing sense of comedic timing not only stars in this movie, but also directs. If you have never seen this movie, go get it. Get to know where comedy started and see a true master of the craft."
