  • This movie denounced the problem of flowing line work.

  • In 1940, he made ''The Great Dictator'',

  • in my opinion this is the best movie of Charlie Chaplin, maybe the greatest of all times. The film tell 2 stories, in the years 40's.

  • One is the dictator Adenoid Hynkel (Adolf Hitler), represented after in period before the conquest of Osterlich (Austria).

  • Chaplin played two roles: Adenoid Hynkel and the Jewish Barber.

  • The scene of Hynkel's speech, are all improvised by Charlie Chaplin in 1 day,

  • after he saw some of Hitler's speeches. This movie had the most famous and the greatest scene of the history of the cinema.

  • This scene is great, grotesque and crazy. He needed three days to act this scene!

  • I'm talking about Hynkel playing with the world.

  • Sadly, nobody wanted to produce the movie, because the most famous companies were distributing movies also in Germany.

  • Yeah, those were valorous people -.- in the 40's in Europe began the II War World,

  • at that point Charlie Chaplin produced the movie by himself, he paid everything personally.

  • This film was visionary for its time.

  • In 1947, he made Monsieur Verdoux,

  • a black comedy dealing with the economic crisis that took place between the 2 world wars. In France Monsieur Verdoux,

  • an employee who was fired by the bank, decides to earn money by killing rich women to be able to sustain his family,

  • but he finishes to be murdered by the guillotine.

  • This was the first movie in which he didn't play ''A tramp'', the idea of the story came from Orson Welles (you know, Citizen Kane and so on).

  • He started to make the film in 1941 and finished in 1946. The role of Monsieur

  • The role of Monsieur Verdoux is a reflection on the idea, that a person does everything to earn money and to become rich,

  • without a moral. Charlie Chaplin did this film, but he had many problems with the public opinion.

  • In 1952, he wrote, produced, directed and played the movie ''Limelight'',

  • a comedy drama with the following topic:

  • in 1914, Calvero was a famous clown but after a while many people ignore him and afterwards he begins to drink and become an alcoholic.

  • One day he saved a girl called Terry that wanted to commit a suicide.

  • The movie made me cry in the final scene:

  • before Calvero dies he wants to see Terry dancing and then the film ends.

  • His last movies were ''A King in New York'' and ''A Countess from Hong Kong'' produced by another production.

  • His movies criticized so strong the American way of life, that the boss' of the film productions told Charlie Chaplin to leave America.

  • So he lived the last years of his life and died in Corsier-Sur-Vevey in Switzerland.

  • In 1915, Chaplin participated in a competition of impersonators of himself, but he didn't win and he arrived third.

  • He received his Honorary Academy Award in 1928 and 1971 "for the incalculable effect he has had in making motion pictures the art form of this century".

  • In 1972 the movie ''Limelight'' won an academy award for the ''Best Original dramatic score'', this movie was originally screened in 1952,

  • but it was not showed in Los Angeles until 1972, at which point it became eligible for this nomination.

  • I think that Charlie Chaplin was the greatest director of all times, we can continue to remember him for both his dramatic and funny art.

  • To homage Chaplin, in Leicester Square in London there's ''The Statue of Chaplin''.

  • I'm SugarK I hope you enjoyed the video, and see you next time!
