    There's a difference between preachy and powerful, and this film is definitely the latter, especially if you stop and think about the world in 1940, when Chaplin makes that final, memorable speech. There's nothing dated about Chaplin's call for social justice and human compassion. Sadly, we still need that reminder just as much today. 4 years 11 months ago

    The first Chaplin movie I ever saw. I really loved his speech at the end. If only people would have listened... 5 years 12 months ago

    To think that Chaplin was initially against synchronized sound in film! His speech at the end wouldn't be possible without it. 2 years 8 months ago
