Film Description

The films Charlie Chaplin made at the Essanay Studios in 1915 show some his most individual work. As director as well as star he could make films around his own performance style, rather than force himself into Max Sennett's frenzied 'keystone comedy' mode. Despite their importance and comic brilliance these films have been rarely seen in recent decades, mostly because of poor or incomplete prints. This edition of all sixteen films in two volumes of double DVD packs was made from the best vintage material gathered in a nine year search. Features: A Woman, The Bank, Shanghai'd, His Regeneration, A Night in the Show, Burlesque on Carmen, Police, Triple Trouble: An Essanay Collage.
