The Tramp struggles to live in modern industrial society with the help of a young homeless woman.
The factory boss was modelled on Henry Ford. Charles Chaplin had met Ford and had seen his industry-changing assembly line process, which had an obvious influence on the film.

Section 5, speed her up, 401.
(at around 1h 11 mins) The juvenile authorities have a photograph of the Gamin included in their warrant, even though they never had the opportunity to take her picture, and there's no evidence of photographs in the humble home of the Gamin's family.
The laserdisc edition contains an extra scene that the film was never released with. An extra verse of the Tramp's gibberish song "Titina" appears (33 seconds in length) at Chapter 13: frames 36235 - 37009 which corrects a continuity jump. This was obviously a last minute removal on Chaplin's part, before the initial release, but was never removed from his 35mm lavender preservation masters which were used to master the laserdisc. The last verse of the Tramp's gibberish song is also shown as a deleted scene on the Chaplin Collection version of Modern Times and with lyrics to it as a karaoke piece.
