5.0 out of 5 stars Chaplin is a Genius Feb. 5 2003
I think Chaplin was by far the best comedian of the silent era (or any era, come to think of it.) While Buster Keaton may have had excellent gags, Fatty Arbuckle a great performer, and Harold Lloyd some incredible stunts, Chaplin combined all these aspects with pathos and great craftmanship.
Some of his best movies are presented here, including "Shoulder Arms," "The Kid," "Gold Rush," and "The Cure." The transfers are stolen from the David Shepard discs, but that's okay because they looked great anyway. The new music, while not "lavish" as the box indicates, is fine. The included Chaplin bio is good for fans-in-training.
My only quibble is that the 1942 re-issue of "The Gold Rush" is shown without Chaplin's narration. Thus, people seeing is for the first time will be confused by the plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars A solid value Dec 11 2000
The box set for Chaplin: An Artist in his Prime represents a solid value for the price. Collected together on 3 DVDs are 9 separate titles, including such greats as "The Gold Ruch", "The Cure" and "The Kid".
The picture quality for the 9 titles varies slightly, however they are all much improved over ealier versions available on video.
One striking drawback to this DVD collection is that source Koch Vision used for "The Gold Rush" is different than what was available on video tape years ago. As well as missing all the descriptive dialog screens, the film also omits two key sequences: The Death of Black Larson, and the last shot in the movie where Chaplin and Georgia kiss.

4.0 out of 5 stars I am a major Chaplin fan Sept. 2 2002
I was impressed with the picture quality overall, however what infuriated me was how the makers of this set made the claim that the music in the films was Chaplin's. It was NOT, and yet the titles clearly stated that it was. His music was far, far superior to the music on these DVDs. His music fit the atmosphere of the movies much better. AND, I was also infuritated that they used the 1942 print of Chaplin's reissue of The Gold Rush, but they did not include his narration. Thus, there are no dialogue titles, as someone else noted, for the simple reason that in the 1942 version, Chaplin spoke the narration himself. ...

the people at KOCHVISION may not be sticklers for accuracy, but this 3 dvd set is pretty good for the price. most of the films are good quality and the music is good too if you dont mind hearing the same music throughout all 3 discs. the big disapointment here is the GOLD RUSH, which is a copy of the later release which should have narration by chaplin, but does not. Buy that one from Image Entertainment & you will not be let down. This is not a collection for true Chaplin fans but it is a decent set for those who dont want to pay outrageous prices for the same movies, or to just watch an occasional chaplin film.
