The Great Dictator|
Directed by Charlie Chaplin
Starring Charlie Chaplin
After dedicated service in the Great War, a Jewish barber (Charlie Chaplin) spends years in an army hospital recovering from his wounds, unaware of the simultaneous rise of fascist dictator Adenoid Hynkel (also Chaplin) and his anti-Semitic policies. When the barber, who bears a remarkable resemblance to Hynkel, returns to his quiet neighborhood, he is stunned by the brutal changes and recklessly joins a beautiful girl (Paulette Goddard) and her neighbors in rebelling.
A super-special bonus feature will be the in-person
Q&A with legendary actor Norman Lloyd who will
discuss his working relationship and friendship with Chaplin. Lloyd,still going strong at 102 years old, is a living treasure.
Discussion will be moderated by Stan Taffel, Chaplin
expert and President of Cinecon Classic Film Festival
Sponsored by Los Angeles City Councilmember, Paul Koretz and the Department of Cultural Affairs
