Chaplins zweiter Tonfilm - eine berühmte sozial- und gesellschaftskritische Tragikomödie über den Menschen im Räderwerk der modernen Technik. Charlie, der Tramp, erlebt am Fließband einer Fabrik, später als Testperson einer "Frühstücksmaschine" und unfreiwilliger Streikführer die Absurdität eines reglementierten Lebens, das die Menschen zu Anhängseln der Apparaturen degradiert. Auch das kleine Paradies, das er für sich und ein armes Straßenmädchen errichtet, erweist sich als trügerisch; am Ende zieht Charlie mit seiner Freundin auf der Landstraße davon. Eine Tragikomödie von bitter-ironischer Schärfe; mit einfachsten Mitteln, viel Bildwitz und Galgenhumor gestaltet, setzt der Film die vitalen Bedürfnisse des Menschen gegen die übertriebene Rationalisierung und Mechanisierung des Lebens. (Quelle: Lexikon des internationalen Films)
Der große Diktator by Charlie Chaplin( Visual )

30 editions published between 1100 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die USA waren noch nicht in den Zweiten Weltkrieg eingetreten, als Chaplin sich bereits mit seiner Comedy-Munition auf den "Führer" einschoss: In seiner Doppelrolle spielt er sowohl den an Hitler angelehnten Adenoid Hynkel als auch einen jüdischen Friseur, der dem irren Tyrannen wie ein Zwilling gleicht. Mit Wortspielen, optischen Gags und Slapstick nimmt Chaplin den Faschismus aufs Korn, stellt aber seinen Attacken auch ergreifende Szenen im von Sturmtruppen terrorisierten Ghetto gegenüber. Zu den unvergesslichen Momenten zählen Hynkels machttrunkener Tanz mit dem Globus, der Kopfüber-Flug sowie Hynkel und Jack Oakie als Mussolini-Alter-Ego, die beide wie wahnsinnig ihre Friseurstühle höher kurbeln
