Silent Era giant Charlie Chaplin’s first-ever pure talkie — and a controversial masterpiece. In it, Chaplin offers both a cutting caricature of Adolf Hitler and a sly tweaking of his own comic persona. Chaplin brings his sublime physicality to both roles: the cruel yet clownish “Tomainian” dictator and the kindly Jewish barber who is mistaken for him. Nearly 80 years later, THE GREAT DICTATOR remains surprisingly relevant with the power to provoke, inspire, entertain and perhaps even topple totalitarian regimes.
