    Wouldn't call myself a huge Chaplin fan, but this film really melted my heart. It is a must buy!

    Thank you for the review, Matt. Spot on!

    I can't watch even an excerpt of this film without waterworks flowing. Coogan gets to me every time.

    Great piece, Matt.

    As to undercranking, it was used for far more than comedy.

    You'll find examples in chases, as well as a personal favorite, the ability to add that bit of extra dexterity and bounce, to Mr. Fairbanks action sequences.

    Yes, Mr. Model does mention Fairbanks' use of the technique of undercranking though the emphasis of the bonus feature in question is with its use to add zip to comedy staging and timing.
