With this classic comedy, director and star Charlie Chaplin created a hilarious tale of mistaken identity and a powerful satire - made at a time when the world was on the brink of chaos after the rise of the Nazis in Germany. It's the last days of World War One and a wounded soldier loses his memory. On his release, the soldier opens a little barber shop and settles into regular life. Through a series of events, he is soon mistaken for the evil dictator who he resembles - and is given a chance to make a speech to the troubled nation that could change the course of history for the better.
