Chaplin's film advanced a condemnation of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, fascism, antisemitism, and the Nazis. At the time of its first release October 15, 1940, the United States was still formally at peace with Nazi Germany. Chaplin plays both leading roles: a ruthless fascist dictator and a persecuted Jewish barber.
The Great Dictator was popular with audiences, becoming Chaplin's most commercially successful film. In 1997, it was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
In his 1964 autobiography, Chaplin stated that he could not have made the film if he had known about the true extent of the horrors of the Nazi concentration camps at the time.  The score playing is titled TIME by Hans Zimmer from the Inception soundtrack

Toot that Trumpet (1943) 🎺
Dancers: The Sepia Steppers (on the right you can see Alice Barker. The 102 yo woman who watched her dancing videos from the 1930s/40s for the first time and went viral on YouTube. She is always in the recommendations, what a sweetheart 💕)
Singer: Francine Everett, "The most beautiful woman in Harlem". I posted her some time ago and was asked to post her again cause she's absolutely amazing. There are only 1 or 2 photos of her on Google but I did find some videos! 
This one's a gem 🌠

#nowwatching The Wolf Man (1941). Maybe my favorite Universal monster flick? .

Tough to pick- but this one clicked with me even as a kid watching them.

I just always related to Lon Chaney Jr.'s tragic Larry Talbot.

No cure or happy ending either which shocked me when I first saw it.

Well written, good acting, excellent atmosphere. 5/5 for me.

Romanze in Moll (1943)
'One is gallant, one makes gifts'
Can't find proper words to praise Helmut Käutner  for this piece of art. Intimate and somber, with no political content; just the bird inside the cage, the pearl necklace and the romance in a minor key. 
P.S. I feel obliged to read Maupassant 'Les bijoux' now.

Minha Coleção 🍿: VIRTUDE SELVAGEM (The Yearling - 1946).
💭Sinopse: A vida nas prósperas terras da Flórida de 1870, logo após a Guerra Civil Americana, pode ser feita de terras férteis, caças abundantes, histórias divertidas e solidão. Pelo menos assim é o lar do pequeno Jody Baxter (Claude Jarman Jr.). Aos 11 anos, ele convence os pais (Gregory Peck e Jane Wyman) a deixá-lo ter um veadinho como animal de estimação. Mas a amizade dos dois pode ficar seriamente comprometida. Adaptado da obra de Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, ganhadora do Prêmio Pulitzer.

Ok, since I've been watching those "Inner Sanctum Mysteries" with Lon Chaney Jr.- I thought I'd post the intro from those movies. Very reminiscent of the Twilight Zone and Outer Limits which would come later.

Video from "Classic Film and TV Cafe" YouTube page.
