At the time of the release of this film economic Depression was biting, and movies more than ever before became a source of feelgood balm. Chaplin went against the incoming tide of talking pictures by using only music, sound effects, subtitles and his own pantomime skills. Out of all the films that Charles Chaplin did this was his personal favorite. This is Charles Chaplin’s first time where he composed the film score to one of his very own films.
