Review
A wonderful example of the ability Chaplin had to comment on current issues with witty, visual satire. This film was, Chaplins first "talkie", and has him playing both a persecuted Jewish businessman, and Hynkel, a sharp and accurate lampoon of Hitler. A superb example of Chaplins comic genius.
