great news to see all charlie chaplin's feature films on dvd.as a bonus, released for the first time on any format in the U.K are two films that are quite obscure: "a woman of paris" and "king in new york." i haven't seen them yet.
as for the rest, each film has at least one famous sequence which lingers in the mind long afterwards. my favourite films in the collection are "the gold rush," "the kid," "modern times" and "city lights."
the special features are plenty: screen tests, trailers, documentaries about each film, short films and even chaplin being filmed on the set directing a key sequence from "city lights." that in itself is a rarity.
and last but not least, is a 2 hour documentary about chaplin. again, i haven't seen this yet.
endlessly, there has always been a debate over who was superior out of chaplin or buster keaton. as far as i'm concerned, it is too close to call but i prefer chaplin by a narrow margin.
purchase this box of delights ,and be solidly entertained for hours on end.
