Charlie Chaplin’s first talkie, The Great Dictator was nominated for five Oscars, including one for Best Original Score. In the first North American screening of its remastered version, this half-satirical, half-comedic film delivers a message of hope and tolerance through the incredible story of a humble Jewish barber and a look-alike dictator based on Hitler. The original soundtrack by Chaplin and Meredith Willson was restored by the guest conductor for the occasion, Timothy Brock.
