Yeah The Great Dictator is a wonderful movie. It threw humor at a very dark time in human history and combined that with a poignant message. I think this movie is actually the first time Charlie Chaplin ever spoke in a movie ..... that's one hell of an entrance.

That cheesy music really helps but it's still pretty fucking badass.

I had heard the speech before but this thread got me interested in it a bit more, so I've reading about it.. I found an article about how influential this film was for rallying support for the second world war. It was a pretty good read.

The speech had a slightly different meaning in context at the time, but it's amazing how he crafted a speech that applies so well today...
