There's a difference between preachy and powerful, and this film is definitely the latter, especially if you stop and think about the world in 1940, when Chaplin makes that final, memorable speech. There's nothing dated about Chaplin's call for social justice and human compassion. Sadly, we still need that reminder just as much today.
The first Chaplin movie I ever saw. I really loved his speech at the end. If only people would have listened…
Obviously not his best comedic film, but still love that speech at the end. Funny how it still completely resonates today, yet no one is listening.
