Modern Times 麼登時代(1936)

Smile - Charlie Chaplin
"A day without a laugh is a wasted day." - Charles Chaplin

"如果某一天妳沒有笑過一次的話,
妳是浪費那一天了" - 卓別靈



Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...If you smile
With your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worth
while if you'll just...
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhileIf you'll just...
Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by..I
If you smile
Through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhileIf you'll just Smile...
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you'll just Smile


這是一部譏諷現代科技壓逼人性的電影。

[Hope] - Speech" of 1938--1940. Charlie Chaplin
電影1"The Great Dictator" 大獨裁者(1940)

以一個理髮師陰差陽錯, 被迫冒充希特拉的幻想橋段,
1940年美國還未參戰, 他用此片提醒美國人不要聽希魔的花言巧語,
用喜劇方式拍攝的政冶治電影。

====================================


差利一生在舞台上帶給人類無盡的歡樂,
在政冶治觀點上同情弱勢社群和貧苦大眾,
不滿資本主義企業壓逼人民,
被美國政府懷疑是共產黨人,
1952年離開美國後, 便沒有再踏足此地!

In 1952, Chaplin left the US for what was intended as a brief trip home to the United Kingdom for the London premiere of Limelight. Hoover learned of the trip and negotiated with the Immigration and Naturalization Service to revoke Chaplin's re-entry permit. Chaplin decided not to re-enter the United States, writing; ".....Since the end of the last world war, I have been the object of lies and propaganda by powerful reactionary groups who, by their influence and by the aid of America's yellow press, have created an unhealthy atmosphere in which liberal-minded individuals can be singled out and persecuted. Under these conditions I find it virtually impossible to continue my motion-picture work, and I have therefore given up my residence in the United States."
