    In his notorious masterpiece THE GREAT DICTATOR, Charlie Chaplin (CITY LIGHTS, MODERN TIMES) offers both a cutting caricature of Adolf Hitler and a sly tweaking of his own comic persona. Chaplin (in his first pure talkie) brings his sublime physicality to two roles: the cruel yet clownish Tomanian dictator and the kindly Jewish barber who is mistaken for him. Featuring Jack Oakie (THIEVES HIGHWAY, LOVER COME BACK) and Paulette Goddard (MODERN TIMES, THE WOMEN) in stellar supporting turns, THE GREAT DICTATOR, boldly going after the fascist leader before the U.S.s official entry into World War II, is an audacious amalgam of politics and slapstick that culminates in Chaplins famously impassioned plea for tolerance.
