Charlie Chaplin United States, 1921

Den-Leroy Kangalee's rating of the film The Idle Class

Although I prefer late Chaplin to early Chaplin - "The Idle Class" is hilarious. Chaplin's light-hearted barbs at the rich are always appreciated. prefer his darker, more savage critiques of Capitalism ("Monsieur Verdoux," etc) but - hey, It's Chaplin. What more needs to be said? He had more talent in his foot than most "actors" or "directors" have in their entire bodies. Even when he's bad he's great.
