* HarsherInHindsight: Chaplin only had a faint picture of the atrocities occurring in Nazi Germany when the film was being produced, based on what refugees from Europe had told him. Back in 1940, the worst things have not started yet anyway. He stated that had he known the full extent of the Nazis' crimes, he'd have never made the film.

* HistoryMarchesOn: Even during production -- at first the British government wanted to ban the movie from showing in the UK, as per the policy of appeasement. By the time it was made, Britain was at war and the movie was embraced for its propaganda value.

* ActingForTwo: Yep.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In his autobiography Chaplin, who'd resisted for ten years going over to talkies, revealed that his original concept of the film was to mix silent sequences featuring the Tramp with talking sequences featuring The Great Dictator.
