VINTAGE FILM NIGHT: THE GREAT DICTATOR - The Courtyard Playhouse The Courtyard Playhouse


The Great Dictator is a 1940 American political satire comedy-drama film. After dedicated service in the Great War, a Jewish barber spends years in an army hospital recovering from his wounds, unaware of the simultaneous rise of fascist dictator Adenoid Hynkel and his anti-Semitic policies. When the barber, who bears a remarkable resemblance to Hynkel, returns to his quiet neighborhood, he is stunned by the brutal changes and recklessly joins a beautiful girl (Paulette Goddard) and her neighbors in rebelling.

This film is written, directed, produced, scored by and starred Charlie Chaplin.

The film will be introduced by our resident classic film expert, Jessica Pratt.
