Modern times by Charlie Chaplin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1,200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An imaginative, often slapstick satire on the alienating and disruptive effects of mass production and automation. Charlie Chaplin, in his last portrayal of his famous character the Tramp, goes from a factory worker to jailbird to night watchman to singing waiter, beset on all fronts by bad luck, misunderstandings, and unfortunate circumstances beyond his control. Befriended only by a lovely but wild street waif, he labors against all odds to make a life for himself. Primarily a silent film with music, sound effects, and some spoken and sung dialogue

Liberace plays a concert pianist threatened by deafness. Plunged into despair, he finds escape from sorrow by secretly involving himself in the problems of strangers. Liberace touches the heart and delights the ear with sparkling renditions of 31 selections from Chopin to Chopsticks. Along the way he romances Joanne Dru and Dorothy Malone, trades barbs with old pro William Demarest and in a humorous nightclub scene, pokes fun at his own image as the 1950s matinee idol of the little-old-lady set
