By 1915 Charlie Chaplin was a prolific filmmaker and a recognizable star. He was also writing, directing and of course, starring in his own films. Injecting some pathos and imaginative visual gags, Chaplin was revolutionizing motion picture comedy, bringing some maturity to the form without necessarily losing the silly gags and piefights. This collection of five two-reelers he made while with Essanay films consists of WORK, A WOMAN, THE BANK, and SHANGHAIED. Available as a single DVD or as part of the larger twelve DVD box set collection.
