This collection of Charley Chase films is an excellent companion to the two Chase collections from Kino released in 2004 and 2005.

The discs have been mastered from a combination of 35mm and 16mm source prints. The prints are generally good to very-good in quality, with a few exceptions at both extremes.

The films are accompanied by music scores composed and performed by Ben Model, the Snark Ensemble, Andrew Earle Simpson, Redwine Jazz, and the West End Jazz Band.
