Synopsis

This classic 1940 comedy features Charlie Chaplin speaking on screen for the first time in a dual role as a sweet Jewish barber, Hynkel and murderous, Hitler-like Napoloni, the dictator of Bacteria. Particularly delightful comic scenes include Hynkel's ballet dance with a globe, and a cake fight between Hynkel and Napoloni.
