(1936) The Tramp gets trapped in the coils of automation; plays the guinea pig for a feeding machine gone amok; helpfully waves a red flag dropped by a departing truck — just as a Communist demonstration marches up behind him; and accidentally sniffs “happy dust.” A corrosive satire on the dehumanizing effects of technology, but also one of his most lighthearted works, with the additional exuberance of Paulette Goddard as “the Gamin.” Approx. 87 min. 35mm.
