An Original Vintage Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh) (Learn More)

The Great Dictator, the 1940 Charles Chaplin World War II (WWII) anti-war black comedy ("Charlie Chaplin in his greatest role"; "The world will be laughing again..."; "2 1/2 hours of hilarity! Twelve thousand feet of laughter chosen from half a million feet of film!"; "The Chaplin millions love! The little tramp is back, converging into a dual role of a power-mad tyrant!"; "Plus a New Chaplin! A Chaplin for the new generation of fans, aiming his mirth at a target of timeliness!"; "The comedy masterpiece!"; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award; the movie was Chaplin's first actual talking movie, because his two previous only had music tracks and sound effects, but no dialogue, and this was a fully talking movie, so it was advertised with the tagline "He talks..."; note that this movie was made very early in World War II, and it had actually started production in 1937, long before the U.S. entered, and before the full extent of the Nazi atrocities were even guessed at, but it seems somewhat bizarre to have a movie that makes fun of such events, although the movie ends with a long brilliant speech in defense of pacifism by Chaplin!) starring Charlie Chaplin (Charles Chaplin; nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; he played two parts, the Hitler-like Adenoid Hynkel, and "a Jewish barber", a twin for Hynkel), Paulette Goddard, Jack Oakie (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; as the Mussolini-like Benzino Napaloni), Henry Daniell, Reginald Gardiner, Billy Gilbert (as Field Marshal Herring), Maurice Moscovitch, Emma Dunn, Bernard Gorcey, and Paul Weigel. Note that Adolf Hitler found nothing funny about this movie, and he had it banned in Germany!
