Happening Sunday: 'The Great Dictator,' Enemy Insects, and more

-"The Great Dictator": In his autobiography, Charlie Chaplin revealed “Had I known of the actual horrors of the German concentration camps, I could not have made ‘The Great Dictator.’” Even though Chaplin’s first full-length talking picture stills feels powerful over 70 years later, the cinema master felt that it was inappropriate to make fun of the Nazis. Catch the controversial political satire outside the Jewish Museum and drop by early at 3 p.m. to hear Dr. David Ward lend his insight on fighting fascism with film and the importance of “The Great Dictator,” whether or not Chaplin himself liked it. 8 p.m., Jewish Museum of Maryland, 15 Lloyd St., (410) 732-6400, jewishmuseummd.org, free.
