Chaplin was one of the most creative personalities in the silent film era: he acted in, directed, scripted, produced, and eventually scored his own films. Merging physical grace and disrespect for authority, he created a signature character, the Little Tramp, who wore a gentlemen’s derby, carried a cane, and sported a toothbrush mustache. The Little Tramp’s baggy trousers and oversized shoes contributed to his unique, bow-legged dance-walk. How did Chaplin’s political leanings affect his career? More… Discuss
Greatest Speech Ever Made Charlie Chaplin The Great Dictator W/Time Inception
If you like it, support it –
The movie that this speech is from is “The Great Dictator”
The background music is “Time” composed by Hans Zimmer from the Inception Soundtrack
I know there are many versions of this clip floating around the net (and thankfully so for this speech should be shared), and though most of them are of good quality, I made this one with the intent of creating a higher quality version.
I added the music, very simply, because I like it. I feel it fits perfectly. I don’t take credit for the idea, I just wanted to improve on it.
That said, I am never going to add clips to this speech.
I’ve seen so many versions where people have added movie and news clips in an attempt to increase the impact of this speech, or to promote their political views, and the result is always the same-
It SUCKS!! (except for the Star Wars Version- that was pretty cool)
If I were to add any images to this video, your thoughts would be limited to the visuals attached to it.
This speech is a treasure to find and a gift to give because it can connect to people from all walks of life. I’m not going to take away from the meaning by pushing my thoughts, beliefs or grudges on you or anyone else.
Think for yourself and create your own personal connection to this.
Believe in more than you see, and a new world will appear before you.
For all the purists, I have finally completed and posted the “non-musical” version of this speech in it’s entirety.
