SKU: D10-ShortsChaplin Categories: ,


A huge 10-disc set of comedy shorts and features made during the first five years of Charlie Chaplin’s screen career, while he was at Keystone Studios. Highlights include little Jackie Coogan 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 taxi driver at the movie’s outset. It’s a tour-de-force performance that only this master funnyman could pull off.

Also included is a TV documentary narrated by Burgess Meredith. Included is Chaplin’s first full-length movie (it was also his last work at Keystone) and is reconstructed from the short “Police” and a reel of material the studio edited out in order to create “Police.”
