- RUN TIME:
- 110 min.
- Not Rated
Forced out of the U.S. in 1952, Chaplin lashed back with this scathing satire of everything American – from McCarthyist witch hunts to CinemaScope and rock’n'roll – as he plays his last full role, a deposed and impoverished monarch seeking refuge in Manhattan (though the film was shot in the United Kingdom).
