seventh annual Duval County Fair
and Exposition, November 7 to 17.
work is rapidly progressing at the
Brentwood Fair Grounds in Jack
sonville repairing and enlarging
buildings to make ready for the
ten day festival.
Fair officials have launched
their promotional campaign to
bring record crowds from North
Florida and Southern Georgia to
participate in the exposition. So
great has been the response from
prospective exhibitors that the
fair management is considering
even additional enlargement of fa
cilities to take care of the enor
mous increase in agricultural, in
dustrial and live stock exhibits.
So great was the response to last
year’s “accredited herd” live stock
show the fair management has de
cided to accept none but accredited
animals and the show will be on a

THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY
OUR
FILM FOLKS
HELEN SIGMUND
Hollywood “Any resemblance
between Dictator Hynkel and the
Jewish Barber is purely coinci
• dental.” With this paradoxical op
j ener. “The Great Dictator” pro
ceeds to unfold the most brilliant
caricature of Chaplin’s career.
Written . . . directed produced
... and acted by Chaplin, the film
was three-and-a-half years in the
making from germination of the
idea to completion of the synchro
nized celluloid ... a slow process
of writing, rejecting, reshaping,
reshooting. Critics are disagreed
on its merit. . . some adjudge it
the comic’s greatest. . . otters, ex
, pec ting lavish settings, wrote
sourly.
The film has one handicap—its
very essence, woven of tragedy, is
not conducive to laughter. The
comedy, hilarious though it is,
turns bitter in the heart. The sat
ire, incisive and scintillating, is
too remindful of woe. It is, in
short, tragicomedy.
The cast is excellent throughout.
j Charlie was born for the part—in
age, build, complexion, and mus
tache, he is the Fuehrer. Paulette
Goddard, as the little Jewish wash
woman, forgets glamor and acts.
Fine performance of Maurice Mos
covich adds a sad note. . . it was
his last work. Easily identifiable
. are Billy Gilbert as Hering and
Henry Daniell as Garbitsch. Jack
Oalde is so like “Doochy” he could
double (with both chins) for him
anywhere. .
Highlights: Chaplin’s German
gibberish haranguing the members
of the Double Cross. His dance
with the world. The choosing by
coin of a man to blow up the pal
ace. The shaving scene in rhythm
to a Brahms’ Rhapsody. Charlie’s
curtain speech, ending the picture
on a serious note, is a plea for
tolerance of all races, colors,
creeds, a prayer for humanity, for
a free world, for wiping out of
greed, for more happiness in liv
ing.
The story treats of the poor Jew,
the ghetto dweller, not of the pro
fessional or scientist Jew as in
previous anti-Nazi themes. Not
j cut out by accepted Ftlmtown pat
terns, the picture is unique. . . and
j Chaplin remains the unsurpassed
master of pantomine.

1. John Wycliff in his introduc
tion to the first English version of

2. Yes. Recent archaeological

circumstances described in the Bi
ble.

the loss of limb.

1a n d who was revered for his
saintly character (1837-1933).

set of chessmen from Bagdad to
the Emperor Charlemagne (about
800 C. E.) and thus introduced the
