This compilation of four magnificent Charlie Chaplin films from 1917 has Charlie at his hilarious best as he plays an immigrant, an escaped convict, an incurable inebriate and a hopeless derelict. His regular co-stars Edna Purviance , Eric Campbell and Henry Bergman fill in with various supporting roles. Charlie’s portrayal of bumbling characters that are seldom out of trouble has the audience in splits. His inimitable acting style and trademark attire - undersized hat, inseparable walking stick, oversized shoes and a suit that all tailors would readily disown - have created a special place for Charlie in the minds of millions of fans the world over.
Running Time: 77 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: G
"Charlie Chaplin made the role of a comic underdog all his own. Playing a bumbling vagrant in various forms, Charlie had the audience eating out of his hand, despite the fact that most of the stories are pretty ordinary, predictable and short. Charlie’s incomparable acting genius ensures that the absence of the spoken word in his films is seldom noticed by the audience, who are more often than not holding their sides in sheer delight at the antics of this born entertainer. The four short vintage classics on this DVD are some of the best examples of Charlie’s wit and brilliance. Small wonder then that most other comedians end up as second best when compared to this astonishing and incredibly gifted actor who taught the world how to laugh despite circumstances!"
''After watching this delightful mosaic (Charlie Chaplin Film Fest) of Chaplin’s best feature films, feel inspired to tell you that one of India’s most famous actors - Raj Kapoor - based almost his entire career on the portrayed characters. The Film Fest accurately captures Charlie Chaplin’s comic genius. A2ZCDS - a big thank you"

"Charlie Chaplin Film Fest just underlines a basic fact - the Tramp will never grow stale. I guess the highest commendation I can give it is that my grandkids laughed as hard as I did when we watched it yesterday. I’m proud to belong to an age when Charlie Chaplin was at his zenith."
