Chaplin & Hitler

A nice article in Photoplay from 1940 almost criticizing Chaplin for taking on Hitler while America hadn't made up it's mind about the Nazi monster yet.

Photoplay Excerpt

People were anxiously awaiting the movie and knew it would be great, but many in Hollywood were afraid to event talk about the subject of Hitler.  There were many sympathizers around to challenge what Europe already knew, but Chaplin knew better and took him on.
