Chaplin's Mutual Comedies Blu-ray Trailer

Posted June 5, 2014 08:46 PM by Webmaster

Flicker AlleyIndependent U.S. distributors Flicker Alley and The Blackhawk Films Collection have released a brand new trailer for their upcoming Blu-ray release of Chaplin's Mutual Comedies. The five-disc Blu-ray/DVD box set, presented for a limited time in a collector's edition SteelBook case, will be available for purchase on July 29th.

The collection features 12 newly restored films (The Floorwalker, The Fireman, The Vagabond, One A.M., The Count, The Pawnshop, Behind the Screen, The Rink, Easy Street, The Cure, The Immigrant, and The Adventurer), all scanned under the aegis of Association Chaplin at a resolution of 2,000 lines from original 35mm prints gathered from archives all over the world, then digitally assembled and restored, a collaborative effort of Lobster Films in Paris and L'Immagine Ritrovata in Bologna, Italy.

Each film offers the option of either improvised piano accompaniment or a full orchestral score. Among the many well-known composers and musicians featured are Eric Beheim, Neil Brand, Timothy Brock, Antonio Coppola, Carl Davis, Stephen Horne, Robert Israel, the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, Maud Nelissen, Donald Sosin, and Gabriel Thibaudeau.

Special Features:
  • A 34-page booklet with rare, behind-the-scenes images, and an extensive essay by film historian and author Jeffrey Vance (Chaplin: Genius of Cinema).
  • The home-video premiere of a 52-minute documentary by Serge Bromberg and Eric Lange, The Birth of the Tramp, which chronicles Chaplin's rise to stardom in concordance with early cinema's growth from fairground attraction into an international industry.
  • Chaplin's Goliath by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald, which tells the story of Charlie's nemesis Eric Campbell, who achieved screen immortality with his appearances in eleven of these comedies.

Pre-ordered at the FA site. Looks like it's going to be an excellent package.

I'm always fascinated with seeing silent film in such high definition. And I'm a fan of Chaplin! Will look out for this...

Pre-ordered. I hope his shorts with Keystone, First National, and Essanay will also be released. I suppose the Keystone shorts may only be released in Mack Sennett collections though.

This does look like a great deal,I do love Charlie Chaplin's "big" movies do Flicker Alley lock their discs or are these likely to be region free?I'm guessing not.
