These timeless masterpieces from one of the most influential artists in motion picture history round out the catalog offerings first released last July (“The Gold Rush,” “The Great Dictator,” “Limelight” and “Modern Times.”) All films have again been digitally re-mastered from restored vault elements by the Parisian company, MK 2 under the supervision of the Chaplin family estate. “The Kid,” “The Circus,” “City Lights,” “A King in New York” and “A Woman of Paris” and “Chaplin Revue,” which are each deluxe two-disc sets, will be priced at $29.95 SRP. “Monsieur Verdoux,” a single disc, will be priced at $24.98 SRP. The six titles will also be offered as a Chaplin Collection 12-disc gift set. Included is “Charlie: The Life and Art of Charles Chaplin,” the feature-length documentary which was a highlight of 2003’s Cannes Film Festival and is currently a finalist for an Academy Award nomination as Best Documentary. Created by veteran Time Magazine movie critic and filmmaker Richard Schickel, “Charlie: The Life and Art of Charles Chaplin” is an extraordinary tribute which includes classic Chaplin comedy routines plus insightful interviews with Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, Johnny Depp and Robert Downey. The documentary tribute will only be available as part of the gift set. With operations in 82 international territories Warner Home Video, a Warner Bros.
