If ever a release showed honour to someone, it's THIS one! But what do I start with? The beautifully restored versions of Chaplin's greatest movies? The magnificent idea of offering as well the 1942 sound version as the completely restored 1925 silent version of "The Gold Rush"? The incredible 25 minutes of (silent) colour film shot by Sydney Chaplin during the production of "The Great Dictator"? The documentary coming with this movie, also containing fragments of the colour footage, this time synchronized with the sound track of the finished film? The foto galleries? The Poster collections? You cannot avoid this collection: it is THE item for the Chaplin fan, well, for EVERY movie lover. And one of the thoughts that crossed my mind, along with the admiration for as well Chaplin's genius, as the great job done by the people who put together this collection, was: if the same people created a similar collection with ... the remaining (short) movies? I own this collection for only one week now, so I didn't have the opportunity to view ALL of it, but what I saw made 5 stars a far to small reward for such work.
