We have not viewed this DVD. It appears that the masters from the 1993 Chaplin: A Legacy of Laughter laserdisc series will be utilized for this and other year 2000 Chaplin DVD releases.

This disc is now contractually out-of-print to make way for another Chaplin family-authorized compilation of these films.
