Editorial Reviews

Name a comedian in the first part of the 20th centuryCharley Chase worked with them, either on or off screen. He was a brilliant comedy writer, film director, and a major movie star. Almost single-handedly, he transformed the world of screen comedy from chaotic slapstick violence into a newly sophisticated comedy of manners, and laid the groundwork for the modern sitcom. He was the worlds biggest skinny manand this is where his legend begins. This deluxe 4 disc collection provides a comprehensive look at Charley Chases early years, from his days as a budding talent at Mack Sennetts Keystone Studios to becoming one of Hollywoods most in-demand comedy directors to his breakthrough as one of the top box office draws of the 1920s. Over 40 rare comedy shorts form 1915-1925 and surviving extracts of lost films digitally restored from materials provided by private collectors and major institutions from around the world. Featuring new music by the Snark Ensemble, Ben Model, the Redwine Jazz Band, and the West End Jazz.
