The Great Dictator
Wednesday, May 11th, 2016 at 12:10 PM
Chaplin plays two totally opposite roles in his first “talkie”, giving a superb display of his boundless talent for both inspired comedy and powerful drama. One of his masterfully drawn characters is a Jewish barber facing the constant threat of storm troopers and religious persecution. The other is the great dictator, Hynkel, a brilliant lampoon of Adolph Hitler that is awesome proof of Chaplin’s pantomime genius. Released in 1941, 125 minutes.
