;__; What a fantastic speech; great googly mooglie. Incredible that this can apply so many decades later!

from what i have heard (i haven't seen it yet) Sasha Baron Cohen's character in "the dictator" does a speech that seems to be very much inspired by that scene.

i remember the first time i seen this scene and being amazed that he did such a powerful performance...cause i always thought of him as a silent film actor.

;u; They say Charlie Chaplin was the man to make us laugh with his silence and cry/cheer with his words.
