Three Cheers for Charlie Chaplin

Here’s a film clip that will move you mightily! I promise!
by Charlie Leck

I watched something startling and remarkable this morning. It was a clip from a Charlie Chaplin movie, The Great Dictator. It is a speech that Chaplin added to the movie following Hitler’s invasion of France.

Be sure to watch it. If only the dictators in Syria, Yemen and Libya could be made to watch it also.

I can’t believe you won’t be touched by this video.

If you cannot see the link above, you can go to the web site OPEN CULTURE and see the clip there.

Three cheers for Charlie Chaplin!

It is possible to get a free copy of this extraordinary Chaplin film on line at Open Culture.
