When I saw this Chaplin collection I just had to have it since I have been a fan for such a long time and since the price was pretty cheap I thought why not. Yes it has most of the short films Chaplin did however the quality of the films is quite poor. I reliaze the movies are quite old but some are a little hard to see but for the price I paid I guess I can't complain. But if purchasing this collection for a much higher price I would not recommend to pay more that $25.00 for it. It is not worth more than that.

I've been in love with Chaplin since I first came across his work at the Manitoba Museum when I was 3yrs old. I literally have dreamed of the day that I could own all of his work, and here it is. The first video on the first disc was a tad annoying, having a commentary over it explaining what was going on in the film (kind of ruined the excitement of the moment for me), but overall, absolutely my most favorite DVD purchase ever. So incredibly glad that I bought this!

chaplin 57 classic shorts-BCI DVD March 28 2005
By LL - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
a good set for the money. there are 5 double sided discs and one single disc with a Chaplin documentary hosted by Burgess Meredith. There are shorts from 1914-1918, mostly of low to medium grade quality with less than satisfactory music scores. and also, features such as "the kid" and others. if you want quality, i suggest the restored sets from "image" and the like.

but this is a lot of Chaplin for a little money. not bad.

Pretty good quality for the Keystone comedies Dec 5 2007
By calvinnme - Published on
Format: DVD
This set includes shorts from Chaplin's early career, plus "The Kid", his first feature. If you are looking for anything but the Keystone comedies, there are better offerings. However, this is the best quality I've seen for the 25 of Chaplin's 35 Keystone shorts included in this set. That doesn't mean they're great quality, it just means they're as good as we're probably going to get. Realize, if you've never seen them, that the Keystone comedies are quite crude in their humor and don't show the flair and originality Chaplin was demonstrating just two years later in his Mutual series. However, to get viewable copies of most of the Keystones plus a documentary, the price on this set is not bad. I make the following recommendations for everything else:

The Mutual & Essanay comedies - Go with Image Entertainment's "The Complete Restored Essanay & Mutual Collection". If you are interested only in the Mutual comedies, which is where Chaplin really hit his stride IMHO, go with the more recent "Chaplin Mutual Comedies", also by Image. The restoration on the Mutual Comedies is visibly superior to the older one that includes the Essanays.

The First National shorts and later features - Go with the two volume collection by Warner Home Video. Everything is completely restored and extra features abound.

As far as Chaplin's Keystones, this set does not include the following:
Cruel, Cruel Love (5.5/10) - found in "The Little Tramp: The Charlie Chaplin Collection" with good quality, but watermarked.
Mabel at the Wheel (5.3/10) - same as above.
Caught in the Rain (5.8/10)
Her Friend the Bandit (7.2/10)
Mabel's Busy Day (5.5/10)
The Property Man (6.0/10)
Gentlemen of Nerve (5.6/10)
His Trysting Place (6.6/10)
Tillie's Punctured Romance (6.7/10) - Image Entertainment has a good print of this one.
Getting Acquainted (5.8/10)
His Prehistoric Past (5.5/10)

The ratings come from a popular film database. As for the missing Keystones, other than "Tillie's Punctured Romance", "Cruel,Cruel Love", and "Mabel at the Wheel", I'm not sure what other DVD collections might include them.

A cane, a mustache, a bowler hat and Fatty Arbuckle's pants June 5 2007
By Annie Van Auken - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
CHARLIE CHAPLIN 57 CLASSICS is a five doubled-sided DVD set of comedy shorts and features made during the first five years of Charlie Chaplin's screen career. Highlights include "The Kid," a six-reel fan favorite co-starring little Jackie Coogan, who worked with Chaplin two years earlier in a short called "A Day's Pleasure." In "Kid Auto Races at Venice," Charlie is seen for the first time in hobo rags, although he is not yet playing his famous "Little Tramp" character.

This extensive collection also includes "The Immigrant," one of C.C.'s famous early films. "The Bond" is a 5-minute short Chaplin made in 1918 to promote War Bonds, and another WWI related item, "Shoulder Arms," has Charlie's half-brother appearing in a dual-role: as a sergeant and as the Kaiser. Finally, a unique and daring film is "One A.M." Chaplin is all alone here, except for a brief appearance of a taxidriver at the movie's outset. It's a tour-de-force performance that only this master funnyman could pull off.

An added bonus are two parts of a TV documentary narrated by Burgess Meredith. In one episode, Chaplin's first full-length movie (it was also his last work at Keystone) is reconstructed from the short "Police" and a reel of material the studio edited out in order to create "Police."

Discover another silent-era superstar. The BUSTER KEATON COLLECTION - 15 Shorts, 5 Movies offers some of the finest comedy ever filmed.

Charlie Chaplin 57 Classics Jan. 24 2010
By A. Pierre - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It's not cheap to get good Chaplin shorts but this set is still very good. It's weird because I have a few other dvds of Chaplin with the shorts on them and they are very good quailty while these prints are passable. I watched these on a Hi-Def tv and these shorts look very good; I dont have a Blu-Ray player yet but I wonder what it would do for this movies. The extra disc that is placed in a slipcase on the side is The Chaplin Puzzle narrated by Burgess Meredith, and it's a very well done film with a remastered version of Police. Overall, a cheap set but still very good considering the shorts are almost 100 years old.
