Hello, everyone. As I intend to place an order at Deep Discount in the next few days, I am tempted to plump for a pre-order of "Slapstick Encyclopedia" while I am at it. However, I can find little information on the product, other than that it is a five disc set (936 minutes) of 53 silent shorts, to be issued by Image Entertainment on April 23rd. (This much came from www.image-entertainment.com, along with a little further, more general info.) From searching the web, I gather that the collection (or at least one by the same name) has previously been made available on VHS and on laserdisc, but I cannot turn up any reviews. Presuming that the DVD release will match if not better its forerunners, I would be most grateful if anyone could offer an opinion on any of these incarnations, or point me towards a source of more detail on the DVDs. Should anyone else be interested, the set is on offer at just over $50 (RRP is just under $70). If you are US-based, you can avail of free shipping to boot.
