    Thanks for the info, I just saw Charley Chase Collection 2 at amazon and was shocked, Kino's site has no info about it. I would say the double dip on a couple shorts, sometimes triple, quadruple depending upon a few other mixed bag collections I have, for Cutting the Chase is well worth it for the extra films.

    Now we need some talkies, of the Chase variety please, did any of those fall in the public domain, or are they all owned by Hallmark and Columbia/Sony? Columbia/Sony could build a Charley Chase / Three Stooges combo line, using the handful of Chase directed Three Stooges shorts to reintroduce their Chase line of short subjects but they don't really treat the Three Stooges right and Hallmark isn't very kind to Laurel & Hardy and Little Rascals so I guess chances of hearing Chase on DVD are slim but worthy of demanding.

    I would say "Cut To The Chase" is the one to wait for, unless for some reason it continues to be postponed for a long period of time.

    Tory, two of the Chase talkies are available on the LOST FILMS OF LAUREL & HARDY discs. (Sadly, THE PIP FROM PITTSBURG isn't one of 'em; I think it's Chase's funniest talkie.) Titles that are included are WHISPERING WHOOPEE (1930, with Thelma Todd) and ON THE WRONG TREK (1936). The set includes another Roach talkie, too, the very funny MIXED NUTS (1934), but none of the usual Hal Roach featured stars are in it.
