Message to the Young of Spirit and Heart who belong to the New World

One of the best movies in my top 20 is, without a doubt, The Great Dictator, the first sound production by Carlitos Chaplin that he wrote, directed, and starred in. The actor plays a Jewish barber persecuted by a totalitarian state, easily recognizable as Hitler's Germany. The barber has a striking similarity to the dictator and towards the end of the film he replaces him. Produced in 1940, the last scene condenses Carlitos' message to humanity. Eighty years later, its validity is shocking, and it is a call of hope to the Young at Heart. Here the original last scene version of the film with Spanish subtitles.
