Charles Chaplin's first full talking feature film in which he delivers spoken linesa full 13 years after the advent of sound in the movies. The film is a slapstick satire on world conditions and fascism at the start of World War II. Chaplin plays a dual role: as a poor, unnamed Jewish ghetto barber, and as a Hitler look-alike, the ruthless tyrannical dictator Adenoid Hynkel of the European country of Tomania. Hynkel's rival is Mussolini-like Benzino Napaloni (Jack Oakie) of Bacteria. The barber and the dictator are involved in a case of mistaken identities. With a memorable scene of Hynkel dancing with a world globe balloon. The film concludes with a lengthy monologue about hope and human rights.
