Chaplin's character keeps alive the unique mannerisms of his tramp character but projects them onto an even more explicit (seemingly) psycotic. As usual Chaplin-fares go, this leads to an ending on a political note, which would later get him condemned in Hollywood. Nevertheless, much cynical hilarity ensues at a steady pace and albeit most of it is derived from "silent" gags it deserves a place as a classic talkie.
one of Chaplin finest, extreme beauty
