Though inseparable from its 1940 production, The Great Dictator is an oddly timeless comparison of stardom and totalitarianism, mass entertainer and mass murderer, director and dictator.

For The Great Dictator's restoration, experts at Cineteca Bologna assembled the best footage from a variety of sources into a new freshly minted print. The final product ... is splendid.

For Chaplin fans, this gift set is a treasure. For those who have never seen Chaplin, the discs serve as an entertaining introduction to a comedy colossus.

...combines biting satire and serious issues, slapstick and sentimentality, all the trademarks of the famous comic actor, writer, and director.
