The Great Dictator final speech

Posted by Jen on Sunday, 6 May, 2007

From The Great Dictator (1940).

Quotes from the movie Chaplin (1992):

J.Edgar Hoover [Kevin Dunn]: I have to wonder if you people realize the level of responsibility you carry. From my way of thinking, Motion Pictures are potentially the most influential form of communication ever invented. And there’s no control over it. Your message reaches everyone, everywhere.
Mary Pickford [Maria Pitillo]: Message?
J.Edgar Hoover: Of course, Mr. Chaplin here reaches millions who only have to see; and when they see a mockery being made of our immigration services, I call that a message.
Charlie Chaplin [Robert Downy, Jr.]: Yes, well, uh, as you’ve already said Mr. Hoover, Motion Pictures are for the people; most of the people work for a living, and they don’t make much money doing it; gives them pleasure to see an official from the upper classes getting a kick up the backside. Always has, and it always will; and if that can change things, so much the better.
