Today on TCM: Modern Times (1936) & The Great Dictator (1940)

Despite A Mythical Monkey’s disturbing front line report that many people (albeit with legitimate reasons) have failed to see The Chaplin Mutuals, I’m positive that all my savvy, silent comedy loving readers have seen Chaplin’s classic features Modern Times and The Great Dictators. However, both of these movies reward repeat viewings, or at least TIVOing for future enjoyment. Today TCM is airing Modern Times at 6 pm EST, followed by The Great Dictator at 8 pm EST. To while away the hours between then and now, check out these interesting reads:
