(1940) In this satirical indictment of Nazi totalitarianism, writer-producer-director Charles Chaplin plays dual roles as Hynkel, a European dictator modeled on Hitler, and as the lookalike Jewish barber who takes his place. As the barber’s lady love, Paulette Goddard shines luminously, even when banging storm troopers over the head with a frying pan, and Jack Oakie steals some scenes with a goofy Mussolini takeoff. Its treatment of serious themes makes it unlikely fare for the very young. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (G -- general audiences) TCM (cable)
