Watch Charlie Chaplin Collection

For those familiar with the Academy Award winning genius of Chaplin's works, the Charlie Chaplin Collection will be a delight; for those new to his comedy it is a must see set. The set encompasses his early seminal work at the film companies Keystone, Essanay, Mutual and First National with an hour and a half documentary about his life and works.

The collection begins with his first film, "Making a Living," which gives viewers a fascinating window into the master's developing comedic style and helps set the tone for the following films. Probably the most significant film of the collection is "The Tramp," which proved to be the beginning of Chaplin's most popular and well known character, the iconic "Little Tramp." Also setting the trend for later films with more story development and less slapstick than his earlier pre-1915 works is "The Kid," a touching story of poverty and togetherness starring a young Jackie Coogan alongside Chaplin.
