The Great Dictator

Chaplin's first talkie stands as one of his greatest achievements. In this touching and often hilarious political spoof on the Third Reich, Chaplin plays dual roles: a poor Jew from the ghetto and Hynkel, the Hitler-inspired leader. Oakie is hilarious as Italian dictator "Napolini."
