This budget compilation follows the suit of other Chaplin collections: put as few films onto as many discs as possible, irregardless of print quality and sell them as cheap as possible. And don’t expect them to be mastered from anything but subpar 16mm reduction prints.

Don’t consider buying this collection for the Chaplin Mutual films. The Mutual films have all been released on DVD home video in far superior editions transferred from 35mm prints.
