The great dictator by Charlie Chaplin( visu )
15 editions published between 1940 and 2012 in English and French and held by 1,133 libraries worldwide
Chaplin plays dual roles in what was his first dialogue film: a burlesque of Hitler alias Adenoid Hynkel, and a Jewish barber who returns an amnesiac many years after an accident in World War I, unaware of the rise of Nazism. The delusions of the dictator contrasts with the earthy pragmatism of the barber (shades of the tramp). The parody of Hitler draws not only on Chaplin's genius for mime but also on his vocal resources. Chaplin's most experimental work was politically audacious at the time. At best it received a mixed reception in an America in the grip of isolationism but was enthusiastically received in blitzed London. The amalgam of hilarity and horror links two very dissimilar films - Modern Times and Monsieur Verdoux. The explicit and impassioned final speech carries a suggestion of unintended irony -while its sentiments are diametrically opposed, the rhetoric and manner of delivery are not far removed from Hitler's
Modern times by Charlie Chaplin( visu )
17 editions published between 1935 and 2012 in English and held by 745 libraries worldwide
This was, in effect, the swansong of the Tramp in what is basically a 'silent' film which makes pointed use of synchronised speech at carefully selected moments. In a series of set pieces, in turn cynical and ironic, sentimental and nostalgic, Charlie unsuccessfully assumes a variety of occupations from assembly line worker to singing waiter. In between times he becomes one of the unemployed, a willing prisoner and the companion of a working class girl. The film begins as social satire but Chaplin's factory is too stylised to give the humour much bite. Modern times is ultimately more about homelessness than modernity. Chaplin's political and philosophical naivety is disarming. His comic genius as a performer is timeless
