The Great Dictator
The Great Dictator is a film directed by and starring Charlie Chaplin. First released in October 1940, it bitterly satirizes Nazism and Adolf Hitler. Chaplin plays both the Dictator of Tomanian, Adenoid Hynkel, and a humble barber from the Jewish ghetto who bears an uncanny resemblance to him.
At the end of the film the barber and friend manage to escape from a concentration camp, guised in military uniforms. As chance would have it, they are picked up by Tomanian forces and the barber is mistaken for Hynkel himself. The Jewish barber now gets the once-in-a-lifetime chance to speak to the people of Osterlich and all of Tomania, and delivers an impassioned plea for humanity in the face of tyranny.
