WORDS ‘N’ PICTURES: Criterion’s Incredible Cover to THE GREAT DICTATOR

4 Oct


The Great Dictator Criterion cover

This edition was released back in May – I must have missed it because I’ve got the previous DVD edition, which is also excellent.

Charlie Chaplin made several good films after The Great Dictator, but this is his final masterpiece. Chaplin was the first major filmmaker to have the balls to criticize Hitler, well before the U.S. was ready to enter World War II. If you haven’t seen it, do it now – it’s one of the greatest films of all time!
