Wonderful WWII agi-prop that is a must see
25 April 2002 | by (FRAZIER PARK, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Chaplin's "Great Dictator" may rank with the college film professor crowd as the imperial double people who look like Audi. But here, this is something clever. If you like the Sherlock Holmes WWII fests then slide this one in your disc player for an enjoyable evening.
