Dir Charlie Chaplin
With Charlie Chaplin, Paulette Goddard, Jack Oakie
The Great Dictator was written, produced and directed by Chaplin, who had just made the move from silent to sound films. Here he plays both a brutal dictator and a Jewish barber under persecution from a shocking regime. One of the greatest satirical comedies of all time, it’s a bittersweet affair that demonstrates how all subjects can be a source of comedy in the right hands.
