The Great Dictator

The Great Dictator, Chaplin's masterpiece about good and evil, was released on October 15, 1940. As David Robinson succinctly puts it: "Quite apart from any particular merits of the film, The Great Dictator remains an unparalleled phenomenon, an epic incident in the history of mankind. The greatest clown and best-loved personality of his age directly challenged the man who had instigated more evil and human misery than any other in modern history."
