3.0 out of 5 stars NICE TIN, but... Sept. 25 2010
By Achoo - Published on

I found the previous reviews of this item lacking, to say the least, so hopefully this one will help any potential buyers out there.

If you're a collector, as I am, you will be pleased with the embossed tin that this 2-DVD set comes in. It is made of good quality metal and will be a nice addition to your DVD collection.

Inside the tin are 2 DVDs in regular-size keep cases that are housed in a cardboard slip case that matches the design of the tin.

Disc one contains "Shoulder Arms" (45 mins), "The Champion" (20 mins) and "The Kid" (60 mins). Video quality is actually very decent, although I'm sure no remastering was done. As for the audio... well, it sounds like someone put an old vinyl album of ragtime piano on a turntable and let it play along as the videos were being transferred. The music is not bad at all (Scott Joplin maybe? I'm not sure.), but it is complete with the pops and scratches inherent to vinyl. And if the music follows the action of the story at all it is pure coincidence.

Disc two contains "Easy Street" (11 mins), "The Vagabond" (19 mins), "Work" (24 mins), "The Tramp" (26 mins), "The Knockout" (25 mins) and "Kid Auto Races at Venice" (6 mins). Video quality here is not as consistent as disc one. "Work" is almost unwatchable, and "The Knockout" fares little better. However, for what it's worth, the audio is much better. It sounds like they used a CD instead of vinyl this time. Again, the music does not follow the on-screen action, but it's not bad music. I believe Chaplin himself composed the music for most of his features and it is a shame that that music is not included here, but considering the age of these films (1914-1921) there's probably a valid reason why it is not.

One other thing--there are no chapter divisions in this set, so you can't skip forward or backward very easily.

Overall, not a bad deal for the money IF you catch it at the sale price or used. (For some reason it seems to be selling for really outrageous amounts lately!) If you're a Chaplin collector you probably already own "The Kid" and "Shoulder Arms"; but the remaining films, while not among his best, are certainly worth adding to your collection.

Happy viewing!

1.0 out of 5 stars Lousy. Nov. 29 2010
By Mark Pollock - Published on
When the selling point of a set of films is the box they come in, that's not a good sign. These prints are lousy, and often simply copied from official sources, meaning this is basically a pirated set. Speng the money to get the real thing - you won't be disappointed. (Kino company for the Keystone, Essanay, and Mutual Films, and the Chaplin Family Trust for the rest.)
