Adolf Hitler banned The Great Dictator in Germany and all countries run by the Nazis. However, it is reported that curiousity got the best of him and that he had a print brought in through Portugal so he could watch it. He is reported to have watched the film twice, however no one can say what he thought of it. Chaplin later said, “I’d give anything to know what he thought of it”.
also not to be forgotten, Chaplin was on Hitler’s personal hit list~
