Alternate Versions

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 opening credits on the 2003 DVD release have been digitally changed to insert a new copyright notice. The 2003 DVD release includes, in its supplementary material, a deleted scene in which Chaplin unsuccessfully tries to cross a busy street.

The said 33 seconds last minute removal is this: "After the girl takes the diamond from the fat man, she had it checked and she found out that it was a fake diamond."

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.
