Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The incomparable Charlie Chaplin, who was not only a comic genius but also the cinema's first international superstar, appears at his very best in four classic movies collected in this deluxe box set. The Gold Rush 1925 finds Chaplin's immortal screen character, the Little Tramp, enduring the hardships attendant to life in the Yukon during those heady days of wildcat prospecting. Chaplin, by now writing, producing, directing, and even scoring his starring vehicles, added another dimension to the Tramp by making him suffer the pangs of unrequited love -- this time at the hands of dance-hall girl Georgia Hale. With Modern Times 1936, Chaplin flouted convention by delivering to talkie-accustomed audiences another silent film in the grand manner. Costarring Paulette Goddard the former chorus girl to whom he was then married, Modern Times is a brilliant commentary on the insanity of America's rapid-paced, highly industrialized society that also mixes pathos with comedy to heartbreakingly poignant effect. The Great Dictator 1940 saw Chaplin tackling dialogue for the first time in a deliberately ridiculous caricature of Adolf Hitler. The Little Tramp makes his final screen appearance in this picture, incarnated as a barber whose resemblance to a fascist dictator gets him into trouble. In Limelight 1952, Chaplin's swan song as an onscreen performer, he plays a once-great music-hall performer longing for one last big engagement. Claire Bloom is touching as the young ballerina whom the veteran entertainer mentors, and in one utterly charming sequence Chaplin teams with Buster Keaton, another silent-movie great in the twilight of his career. These four very different movies represent Chaplin at various stages of his artistic development, and all are indelibly stamped with his unique genius.

    Chaplin - A Man of All Time

    The word 'genius' in the dictionary need only have a photo of Chaplin next to it. Modern Times is so compelling that once you start watching, you cannot pull yourself away. The storyline is familiar with what we are going through now with the economy, so we are able to live it along with Chaplin. I cannot imagine a better way to pass time than to share a tear and a laugh with the master of pathos and comedy.

    4 discs pure comedy and 4 discs insight

    This is a great set. It has 4 discs which are the movies, and 4 discs that go into details about each movie. The comedy is timeless. Forget the latest comedy movie, get some comedy that is truly funny and fit for the whole family. Laugh till your sides split with Chaplin. Top knotch restoration of classics.
