Film Pigeons Episode 68: Gladiator, The Great Dictator, Top 4 Swordplay Films

This week on the Film Pigeons podcast Andrew, Jason and Mark continue our alphabetical march through cinema history with reviews of two more 'G' films.  First, we try on some form fitting swords and sandals as we review Ridley Scott's Best Picture Winner Gladiator.  Then we hearken back to the era of penguin walks, prat falls and biting social commentary with a review of Charlie Chaplin's 1940 third reich satire, The Great Dictator.  Andrew also continues his march through Best Picture winner history with a review of Vincente Minnelli's musical 1952 winner, An American in Paris.  We also reveal our Top 4 Swordplay films in honor of Gladiator.
