Product Description

Charlie Chaplin was the first true superstar to emerge from the fledgling movie industry, with his status being sufficient to ensure he controlled every aspect of his films he wrote the script, selected the cast and directed the action. He did all these tasks rather well, as is evidenced by some of the classics to be found in this three DVD collection. Easy Street is perhaps his best known film, where his bumbling police officer manages to bring order, but equally worthy of attention are A Night In The Show and His New Job. Contains the following films... Tillie's Punctured Romance / The Champion / In The Park / A Jitney Elopement / Burlesque On Carmen / A Night In The Show / The Floorwalker / The Rink / Easy Street / Police

Format:DVD
I'm a big fan of Chaplin, needless to say he is certainly one of the great film makers and comedians of the 20th century and a abit of a god like figure to us rookie film makers following in his footsteps. Why then a legend of this caliber does not deserve even the basic requirements of a DVD disc set, god only knows. A lot of the footage has not been restored (which I can live with), the DVD box design is pretty minimal (looks like something you could make yourself on iDVD or windows movie maker) and the damn films have been very carelessly handled. Now I don't know if the film frame being 'off centre', cutting out the left hand side and a bit of the top of the frame (Disc 3 'The River Mashers'), is something Chaplin did or something the guys that scanned the film did, but I know it made following the film very difficult, though I made it through in the end. However I did not make it through 'Tillie's Punctured Romance', for the simple fact that the DVD timeline ended before the film did. Plain and simple carelessness (and I still have the rest of the disks to watch). Charlie Chaplin would sometimes retake film shots 40-50 times to get them right, he insisted on doing a lot of the main roles himself, to make sure they were handled done right, he couldn't be here to make sure the DVD was put together right, but mark my words if there is a heaven, and the DVD creators are lucky enough to meet Chaplin up there, I hope he slaps the lot of them, then kicks them each up the backside!

Although it's not full of belly laughs there are some funny moments and you can see the influence Chaplin had on the 20th Century cinema and why this guy is so important. As an aside there is some fascinating insights into life in the early 1900's. Also there is some great early jazz playing in the background.

2.0 out of 5 stars One of the other comments is WRONG 20 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This collection contains the following films, NOT the ones listed in Veronique Guemise's comment:

Disc 1: Tillie's Punctured Romance, The Champion, In The Park
Disc 2: A Jitney Elopement, Burlesque On Carmen, A Night In The Show
Disc 3: The Floorwalker, The Rink, Easy Street, Police

If you are buying this because you are expecting the films contained in Veronique Guemise's comment, you'll be disappointed

4.0 out of 5 stars A great selection 17 Aug 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A great selection of Chaplin shorts.

A small niggle: the music is ill-fitting and downright irritating at times.

A slightly larger niggle: one of the discs froze halfway through a film, and treating the disc to one of my 'opti-wipes' made no difference, which suggests a production fault.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love the films hate the soundtrack 7 April 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a good introduction to Charlie Chaplin. I remember liking them a lot more when I was a kid but I still enjoyed most of the films. The backgound music was irritating at times and this spoiled it for me, with several films.

It is a good collection. What happens is that many videoes have a not very good quality. They look like videoes of VHS, or even worse. Read more
