    Description

    The Great Dictator (United Artists, 1940). One Sheet (27" X 41"). The Little Tramp, Charlie Chaplin, traded in his traditional bowler hat and cane and donned a uniform (not too dissimilar from the Nazi uniform) for this anti-war and anti-fascist feature. Chaplin blatantly poked fun at Hitler and Mussolini as the Dictators of Tomainia and Bacteria. It was also Chaplin's first talkie, coming after sound had already been entrenched in the cinema for thirteen years. The film was a critical hit for Chaplin, and became his last major US feature before he departed for England. Fine/Very Fine- on Linen.
