And the winner is every comedy fan when Charlie Chaplin s Tramp confronts assembly-line woes in this classic chosen in 1998 as one of the American Film Institute s Top-100 American Films.The Little Tramp punches in and wigs out inside a factory where gizmos like an employee-feeding machine may someday make the lunch hour last just 15 minutes. Bounced into the ranks of the unemployed he teams with a street waif (Paulette Goddard) to pursue bliss and a paycheck finding misadventures as a roller-skating night watchman a singing waiter whose hilarious song is gibberish a jailbird and more.
