The Great Dictator Set

& I want to be alone – The Great Dictator Scenes

a Hollywood street to get an ice cream soda. A puzzled

drunk walked by, leaned unbelievingly against

a lamp-post, but finally decided that he‘d better take

no chances. He raised his hand stiffly, tottered

on his heels, and said:

      ,Heil Hitler!‘“
