Product Description:

These remastered versions are the result of film preservationist David Shepard's efforts to gather the best material from Chaplin's historic, transitional time at Essanay Studios (1915-1918). In this collection are the following shorts (all from 1915): "His New Job," "A Night Out," "The Champion," and "In the Park."

Description by Image Entertainment:

In Chaplin's Essanay Comedies, made in 1915, cinema's greatest comedian was first able to build his screen work around his performance style rather than forcing himself, as before, into Mack Sennett's frenzied Keystone comedy matrix. With this freedom Chaplin evolved in a year from the gag comedian of "His New Job" to the brilliant pantomimist of "A Night Out," "The Champion," "The Tramp" and "Shanghaied" to the profound satirist of "Police." Volume 1 includes: "His New Job," "A Night Out," "The Champion," "In the Park," "A Jitney Elopement" (all 1915).
