Manufacturer's product description

'This is the story of the period between two world wars--an interim during which insanity cut loose, liberty took a nose dive, and humanity was kicked around somewhat.' With this pithy opening title, Charles Chaplin begins his first all-talking feature film, THE GREAT DICTATOR. Chaplin stars in a dual role; he plays a sweet-natured Jewish barber and a murderous Hitler-type dictator, with such satirical impact that it counterbalanced the oratory of Adolf Hitler. Particularly delectable comic scenes are Hynkel's balletic 'pas de deux' with a globe, and a cream cake fight between Hynkel and Napoloni, the dictator of Bacteria.
