The Chaplin Revue: The Chaplin Collection

In 1959 Charles Chaplin released a feature-length omnibus film, The Chaplin Revue, which compiled three of his most ambitious and sophisticated shorts made for First National between 1918 and 1923 — A Dog's Life, Shoulder Arms, and The Pilgrim. In addition to editing and re-assembling the three shorts, he composed a full-length musical score and added a narrated prologue cut from behind-the-scenes material shot in 1918. This Warner release, part of MK2's The Chaplin Collection, delivers Chaplin's compilation plus the four other shorts he made for First National. Special features include introductions by Chaplin biographer David Robinson, deleted scenes, Chaplin's war-effort promo The Bond, and home movies of dignitaries visiting Chaplin Studios. Dual-DVD trifold case in paperboard sleeve.
