Long DescriptionThis 2-DVD collection of 18 hilarious comedy shorts are as timelessly funny today as when they were originally released and feature a great, but somewhat neglected comedian in some of his prime work. Charley Chase was one of the most popular comedy stars in both the silent and sound eras. His talkie shorts for Hal Roach have never been collected into a comprehensive collection before, and this first of a planned multi-volume collection is designed to reacquaint comedy fans to his wonderful short films. SPECIAL FEATURES: Commentaries on each short by noted film historian and Hal Roach authority, Richard M. Roberts - Bonus comedy: "La Señorita de Chicago" (Spanish version of "The Pip from Pittsburg") - Poster and still gallery - Digitally mastered from Hal Roach print materials. THE SHORTS: The Real McCoy, Whispering Whoopee, All Teed Up, Fifty Million Husbands, Fast Work, Girl Shock, Dollar Dizzy, Looser Than Loose, High C's 1931 Thundering Tenors, The Pip from Pittsburg, Rough Seas, One of the Smiths, The Panic Is On, Skip the Maloo!, What a Bozo!, The Hasty Marriage. "The 18 short comedies from 1930-31 are a sheer delight, each a perfect showcase for Charley's brilliant comic timing and breezy personality. An added bonus are the appearances in these films of Charley's frequent screen partner, the wonderful Thelma Todd. The icing on the cake are the amiable commentaries provided by Richard Roberts, one of the leading comedy film historians and an authority on Charley Chase's life and career. Roberts' relaxed style brings a refreshing personal touch; it's more like chatting with an old friend who's freely sharing what he knows, and that's always a good thing. I can't recommend this set highly enough, and hope many more people will discover the great Charley Chase in these hilarious films. May there be a Volume Two, and many more to come!" -- Edward Watz (noted Author and Film Historian)
