Chaplin's The Great Dictator at Alex Theatre
He talks! Charlie Chaplin's hilarious, still devastating political satire about Hitler and the Nazis was his first all-talking picture. The Great Dictator is set in the fictional nation of Tomania, loosely disguised as Nazi Germany. Chaplin plays both a Jewish barber and the country's fascist dictator. Join us for this groundbreaking film that was nominated for five Academy Awards in 1940: for Best Picture, Best Actor and Screenplay (Chaplin), Best Supporting Actor (Jack Oakie, hilarious as Napaloni) and Best Score (Meredith Willson). Also featuring the wonderful Paulette Goddard, see The Great Dictator, presented by Alex Film Society, at Glendale's Alex Theatre, a beautiful vintage movie palace dating back to 1925.
