Editorial Reviews

Charlie Chaplin, considered to be one of the most pivotal stars of the early days of Hollywood, lived an interesting life both in his films and behind the camera. He is most recognized as an icon of the silent film era, often associated with his popular "Little Tramp" character; the man with the toothbrush mustache, bowler hat, bamboo cane and a funny walk. The dynamic collection features 5 double-sided DVDs containing 57 of his most beloved short films from 1914-1921 that showcase Chaplin's legendary talent as a performer, writer, producer and director. * BONUS DVD - Road to Rio, the Oscar® nominated comedy starring Bob Hope,

By Warren Cancilla on October 10, 2007
I was thrilled when I bought this video because it contained 57 short films by one of the early masters. I couldn't have been more let down. It is obvious that the makers of this DVD had no interest in their subject other than to make money off of him. The most annoying and consistent element in this selection of videos is how they formatted the videos to fit the TV screen: In the same way that widescreen converted to full screen cuts off the sides of the film, these films were carelessly squeezed into a format that frequently cut off the top (People's HEADS) or bottom of the screen. Whole segments are run where you don't see above a person's mouth. It is infuriating.

This DVD is a must own. It is real fun to watch with the family. It is just non stop humor at it's best.
