This was Ingrid Bergman’s first American film. Holger Brandt (Leslie Howard), a famous violinist, returns home from a concert tour and meets Anita (Ingrid Bergman), the woman who teaches his daughter Ann Marie (Ann Todd) piano. Attracted by Anita's youth, Holger asks her to be the accompanist on his next tour, and the two embark on an affair, despite Anita's feelings of guilt. Holger reveals his infidelity to his wife, resolving to spend his life with Anita, but the couple is forced to reexamine their relationship when tragedy strikes. Famous for nuanced acting performances from both leads, the film also features music from Swedish composers Edvard Grieg and Christian Sindig.

After dedicated service in the Great War, a Jewish barber (Charles Chaplin) spends years in an army hospital recovering from his wounds, unaware of the simultaneous rise of fascist dictator Adenoid Hynkel (also Chaplin) and his anti-Semitic policies. When the barber, who bears a remarkable resemblance to Hynkel, returns to his quiet neighborhood, he is stunned by the brutal changes and recklessly joins a beautiful girl and her neighbors in rebelling.
