The Great Dictator - Charlie Chaplin Blu-ray Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

A Jewish barber returns home after twenty years within hospital walls to find his old shop not only dilapidated but marked with hateful graffiti. The source of this hatred is the regime of a tyrannical dictator which is persecuting the barber along with the rest of the Jewish community. In one of his most ingenious strokes of artistry ever, Chaplin subverted the fears of the time with a visionary and undeniably moving satire of fascism and discrimination.

Please note this is a region B Blu-ray and will require a region B or region free Blu-ray player in order to play.   Chaplin plays two characters in his first full talkie. Adenoid Hynkel, the dictator of Tomania, and a Jewish Barber. The Barber recovers from amnesia to discover Hynkel is persecuting all the Jews in his country. The film ends with a message of hope for the world.  

The rise of Nazism is spoofed in this 1940 film, in which an amnesiac Jewish barber is mistaken for the dictator of Tomania, Adenoid Hynkel (both played by Chaplin). Paulette Goddard, Jack Oakie and Reginald Gardiner co-star.
