In Charlie Chaplin’s film The Great Dictator (1940), Chaplin plays a poor Jewish barber that is mistaken for Adolf Hitler. The film ends with what many critics regard as one of the greatest speeches of all time.

    why the pictures/video/music interpreting the speech? why not let it speak for itself? interesting how people influence it with all the modern day icons etc… seems like someone twisted ole Chaplin's words. Leave his words be Chive. I love you, but for God's sake don't use your popularity as a soap box please.

    Chive on Charlie! The man deserves to have his face placed upon a Chive T-Shirt!

    His look at the end looked desperate and of utter sadness, as if he knew his words would not reach enough people to make a difference…

    I love this Speech so much and have been listening to it on all most a daily basis so I'm a little peeved that now to listen to this speech when coming to Chive I have to sit through a commercial, which seems to work directly againist the message of the speech. I would love it if Chive could post a commercial free version of this speech some how. Or if anyone could point me to a commercial free version of this speech.

    This by the way is why Chaplin was banned in Germany under Hitler and I bet had a shoot on sight order on him.
    When my Dad and Grandfather escaped East Germany in 1947 the first thing they see after leaving the "processing center" (delousing and such) for escapees is Gold Rush by Chaplin. My Grandfather says, Gold Rush! I saw that before the Nazis!" They went in watched the flick and KCCO'd (not that they knew what that was.)

    No matter how many times I watch this video I still get this feeling that we the human population can do so much more with this world.
