The Great Dictator

Thu, May 5, 2011 7 PM
Chaplin takes on WWI, Hitler, and a mischievous dog in this triple bill featuring his first true talkie, The Great Dictator.

In A Dog's Life, a found pup lands the Tramp in hot water. (33 mins., 35mm) Set in France during WWI, Shoulder Arms finds Chaplin bumbling his way through trench warfare on his way to capturing the Kaiser. (37 mins., 35mm)

The first major film to strongly satirize Hitler and the Nazis, The Great Dictator follows a Jewish barber who is mistaken for the Hitler-esque dictator of Tomainia, with Chaplin playing both roles. The film was Chaplin's greatest financial success. (124 mins., 35mm) The Great Dictator begins at 8:15 PM.
