Plot Summary
While Hollywood proves too cautious to deal with Adolph Hitler's rise to power in the 1930s, Charlie Chaplin is the exception, crafting "The Great Dictator" as a direct and utterly satirical response to the growing threat of the Third Reich. Using behind-the-scenes film footage rescued from Chaplin's Swiss villa, Kevin Brownlow's documentary explores this unique confrontation between one of the 20th century's most beloved entertainers and its most notorious dictator.
