THE GREATEST GENERATION OF VILLAINY: THE MOVIES VS. THE NAZIS
THE GREAT DICTATOR
Make Tomainia great again!
35 mm!

THE GREAT DICTATOR
1940, Janus Films, 127 min, USA, Dir: Charlie Chaplin

The physical resemblance between the Tramp and another famous man with a little black mustache was not lost on Chaplin. In his first all-talking picture, he plays both a Jewish barber and his double, Adenoid Hynkel, the absolute ruler of Tomainia. As Hynkel and his henchmen Herring and Garbitsch engineer the persecution of Jews and the invasion of neighboring Osterlich, the amnesiac barber may be the only person innocent enough to stop them. Throughout the film Chaplin powerfully exploits the deflating power of parody, while in the finale he abandons both character and comedy to deliver an impassioned plea for human tolerance. With Paulette Goddard, Reginald Gardiner, Jack Oakie.
