Comedy king Charles Chaplin gives American pop culture and politics the royal treatment in the sharply satiric film that marked the legend's last starring role.

Chaplin, working as usual on both sides of the camera, was in self-imposed exile from the United States when he launched this pie in the face at targets that include overhyped movies, overamped music, celebrity, facelifts, ad pitchmen and political witchhunts. Chaplin plays a deposed European monarch who comes to Manhattan and is soon made a media sensation by advertisers eager to cash in on his name. Charlie's son Michael Chaplin plays the firebrand youth who helps the king rediscover his ideals. The comedy sequences are imaginative and many. The satire is topical yet timeless. Today, as yesterday, Chaplin rules.
