The ability to portray the most appalling events in history while still making people laugh is the gift of a select few. This is what Charles Chaplin achieved in The Great Dictator, in which this genius of the burlesque plays the part of Hynkel, a perfect caricature of Hitler. Chaplin had already humorously denounced the absurdity of the First World War with Shoulder Arms in 1918. Here, he paints a hysterically funny portrait of the Nazi threat.
