The Great Dictator Movie Online
The Great Dictator is a 1940 American satirical political comedy-drama film starring, written, produced, scored, and directed by Charlie Chaplin, following the tradition of many of his other films. Having been the only Hollywood filmmaker to continue to make silent films well into the period of sound films, this was Chaplin's first true talking picture as well as his most commercially successful film. At the time of its first release, the United States was still formally at peace with Nazi Germany. Chaplin's film advanced a stirring, controversial condemnation of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini's fascism, antisemitism, and the Nazis. Fast-forward twenty years, and the barber escapes from his care-home to return to the ghetto, now governed by stormtroopers reporting to Schultz, who has been promoted in the Tomainian regime under the ruthless dictator Adenoid Hynkel (Hitler), who looks like an identical twin of the barber (both played by Chaplin). As Hynkel orders a purge of the Jews, Schultz protests about this new policy, and is jailed, before escaping to hide in the ghetto with the barber and his girlfriend Hannah. The stormtroopers then search the ghetto, arresting Schultz and the barber, while Hannah and her family escape to freedom in Osterlich (Austria). But after a failed attempt at making an ally of Napaloni (Mussolini), Hynkel invades Osterlich, and the Jewish family find themselves living under his regime after all. Escaping from the camp in stolen uniforms, Schultz and the barber, dressed as Hynkel, arrive at the Osterlich frontier, where a huge parade is waiting to be addressed by Hynkel, who himself has just been mistaken for the barber while out duck-shooting in civilian clothes, and is promptly arrested. Schultz tells the barber to go up to the platform and pretend to be Hynkel, as the only way to save their lives.
