    The Great Dictator movie
    During the First World War, a clumsy soldier (Charles Chaplin) saves the life of Schultz (Reginald Gardiner), a military pilot. 

    But they crash and the soldier loses his memory. He gets out of the hospital after many years and reopens his barber shop in the Jewish ghetto. 

    Dictator Hynkel (Charles Chaplin), who resembles the barber, hates the Jews and they are treated shabbily. 

    The barber lands in trouble and is brought before a commanding officer, who is none other than Schultz. 

    Now it's Schultz's turn to help the barber and the Jews lead a much better life. Things change when Hynkel catches wind of this and Schultz is forced to run away with the barber. Luckily for them, the barber is mistaken for Hynkel himself. Watch the film to check out the hilarious consequences.
