The Great Dictator

The Great Dictator
  • 4 stars
  • 1940
  • US
  • 125 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Charlie Chaplin, Wheeler Dryden
  • Written by: Charlie Chaplin
  • Cast: Charlie Chaplin, Paulette Goddard, Jack Oakie

Wonderful late Chaplin classic. Chaplin plays two roles – a meek Jewish barber with amnesia and a Hitler-style mad dictator. Very funny indeed; this is the birthplace of sight and sound gags that Les Dawson got away with using for years. Unusually for Chaplin it's also strangely moving and prophetic.
