HE TALKS! Charlie Chaplin’s hilarious, still devastating political satire about Hitler and the Nazis was his first all talking picture. The Great Dictator is set in the fictional nation of Tomania, loosely disguised as Nazi Germany. Chaplin plays both a Jewish barber and the country’s fascist dictator.
Join us for this groundbreaking film that was nominated for 5 Academy Awards® – Best Picture 1940; Best Actor and Screenplay (Chaplin); Best Supporting Actor (Jack Oakie, hilarious as Napaloni); Best Score (Meredith Willson). Also featuring the wonderful Paulette Goddard.
