The first volume of this compilation contains six of Chaplin's Mutual Films including the slapstick custard pie fights of Behind the Screen and his sensitive portrayal of a broke and hungry migrant arriving in New York in The Immigrant. In the acclaimed Easy Street, Charlie becomes a policeman in a tough neighbourhood, reminiscent of his own impoverished London upbringing. Plus The Rink, The Adventurer and The Cure.
