    I remember my father taking me to see this film at an off campus cinema in the Twin Cities some 30+ years ago. I am glad it is not totally forgotten.

      It is a great on. Odd that one of his few “talkies” is relatively unknown.

        Modern Times was another one we went to see. It was only sort of a talkie.

    That’s a little too moving for this time in the morning. Thanks. It’s touching.

    I’ve never heard Chaplin speak before. Which kinda makes sense. But I didn’t expect him to sound so perfectly eloquent.

      Of course, he grew up on the musical theatre stage in London. His father was a vocalist and actor. His mother was a singer and actress.

    If only people took heed of such words then the world would be a far better place

      And there lies the problem. They don’t. They CLAIM to and blame “the other guy” for not taking steps to peace.
