I was curious to see if a film of this age would look much better on Blu-ray, and I have to say it does. Of course it can't match the quality of later films, but you can see the resolution is still higher than you can get on a DVD. The Blu-ray sticks to the original film format, which I prefer. There's no stretching of the picture or cropping to make it fit a TV screen. Like most of these classic films, it has been well restored. The only flaws you can see are an occasional minor vertical scratch. It gives you a good idea of what this film must have looked like to the original audience. I'm finding films more enjoyable on Blu-ray. There's more detail, more to look at, bringing out things you never noticed before. They seem to have sorted out the problem of the missing DVDs with this series. The Extras are the same as those released on DVD before.

This was bought as a gift for an elderly friend & she enjoyed it very much. It's an old silent movie, in black & white, but worth watching.

I wondered how good the film quality would be - but it was an excellent reproduction of a classic film.

Together with the Gold Rush and Modern Times this is definitely the best film of Charlie Chaplin entire output. A must for those who love humour and silent films.
