The Greatest Speech Ever Made in Movies
February 05, 2014
This is Charlie Chaplin’s moving final speech from the film, The Great Dictator, spliced with modern imagery. The song is Window by The Album Leaf.
The Great Dictator is a 1940 American comedy-drama and anti-Nazi film starring, written, produced, scored, and directed by Charlie Chaplin, following the tradition of many of his other films. Having been the only Hollywood filmmaker to continue to make silent films well into the period of sound films, this was Chaplin’s first true talking picture as well as his most commercially successful film.
