    I went to Virgin and A&B Sound today in Vancouver, and didn't see the Image box set of Chaplin films (Gold Rush, City Lights, etc.)

    Is it OOP? I know there are SE DVDs of Chaplin's films coming out next year by WB, but I can't wait...

    They've been out of print for some time now.

    I saw one at Border's not too long ago, I believe. If you have one near you, ask them to check if they can order it. I believe they will ship from one store to another.

    All of the First National Chaplins to A King In New York will be SE'd by Warner. (And possibly Unknown Chaplin will debut since their PR sheet mentioned 18 films...there's only 17 Chaplin films, excluding cameos and the Keystone, Mutual, and Essanay films, which Image still has)

    While the older DVD's are very good, most of the gloss came from digital restoration. City Lights had thousands of touchups...and several of the films were sped up due to the soundtrack being for the 24fps version.

    I also understand that we will be getting
    The Gold Rush in its original
    UNnarrated state...which would be reason enough
    for me to repurchase it.
