October 15


1940:

Charlie Chaplin's thinly-veiled attack on Hitler, The Great Dictator, premieres. The film, banned in Peru, Spain, and Japan, also caused a stir among the British Film Censors Board and the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, as it was feared that Chaplin's virulent film might run counter to policies of appeasement toward Hitler.

1987:

Bernardo Bertolucci's The Last Emperor premieres in Argentina. The historical work eventually wins all of the nine Oscars for which it is nominated, a distinction shared by 1958's Gigi.
