Synopsis:
Charlie Chaplin entered the film industry in 1914. By 1916 he was the highest-paid entertainer in the world after signing a contract with the Mutual Film Corporation for a salary of $670,000. Mutual built Chaplin his very own studio and allowed him total freedom to make 12 two-reel films during a 12-month period. Chaplin subsequently recognised that time as the most inventive and liberating of his career. These 12 films, brought together for the first time in this newly remastered release, demonstrate the breadth of Chaplin's abilities as both a physical entertainer and a subtle, endearing character actor.
Amongst the classics included here are 'The Immigrant', which endures as a comic masterpiece, and Easy Street, a watershed moment in Chaplin's career.
