A WOMAN OF PARIS (1923) - A Woman of Paris is the only film Charles Chaplin directed that he did not appear in (apart from a cameo). An effective drama about a simple girl from the country who goes to the city and becomes the mistress of a wealthy man.

MODERN TIMES (1936) - Chaplin's last silent film. A production-line worker falls victim to a ongoing attempts to automate an assembly line. Following a series of mishaps, the unfortunate fellow finally finds happiness wih a street waif.
THE GREAT DICTATOR (1940) - Chaplin's first talkie. In this classic film, Chaplin plays two parts; a simple Jewish barber and a dictator (who bears an uncanning resemblance to Adolf Hitler). The barber (who bears a striking resemblance to the dictator) is persecuted for his beliefs but then gets mistaken for the dictator and is given the opportunity to make a speech to the people (at which point Chaplin takes over and addresses the audience directly in a powerful and emotive address).
MONSIEUR VERDOUX (1947) - A black comedy and a departure for Chaplin; a dapper bank worker marries rich women and then murders them so that he can support his real family.
LIMELIGHT (1952) - A once-great music hall comedian who is now down on his luck is inspired by his love for a young ballerina to one last triumphant hurrah.
A KING IN NEW YORK (1957) - Chaplin's last starring feature film. Chaplin plays a penniless European king who comes to New York to start a new life but finds he cannot stand the shallowness of american society and is forced to leave.
