  • Charlie Chaplin has a dual role in this film, his first with dialogue. He plays a sweet-natured Jewish barber and a murderous Hitler-type dictator with such satirical impact that it counterbalanced the oratory of Adolf Hitler. Particularly delectable comic scenes are Hynkel's balletic "pas de deux" with a globe, and a cream cake fight between Hynkel and Napoloni, the dictator of Bacteria.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[W]ith several immaculately realised sequences of pure visual comedy of which the globe-dance is merely the most iconic."
    Sight and Sound Critic
