Booze News: Classic Soused Slapstick from Flicker Alley

>> Sunday, April 27, 2014

Greetings, fellow inebriates,

Fans of soused slapstick and silent comedy take note!  Flicker Alley, the video label that brought us the magnificent Chaplin At Keystone box set, has announced two newly restored collections of silent film shorts on blu-ray: Chaplin's Mutual Comedies (Limited SteelBook Edition) and The Mack Sennett Collection, Vol. 1.  These blu-ray box sets will be released on July 29th, but you can pre-order them now at a discount.  Even better, you receive an additional 10% discount if you pre-order the sets together from this page by April 30th!

Chaplin's Mutual Comedies is a 5-disc Blu-ray/DVD box set featuring the twelve classic Mutual shorts (including alky classics One A.M. and The Cure), all scanned under the aegis of Association Chaplin at a resolution of 2,000 lines from original 35mm prints gathered from archives all over the world, then digitally assembled and restored.

The Mack Sennett Collection, Vol.1 features the first 50 of 100 of the best surviving Sennett comedies that have been gathered from around the world, fully restored, and digitally re-mastered in HD for home video.  This includes the work of Chaplin, Fatty Arbuckle, Mabel Normand, Harry Langdon, and W.C. Fields (specifically the funniest short of all time, The Fatal Glass of Beer).

Click on the collection links above for more info on the contents and special features, but if you plan to buy both, be sure to use the combo page to get the deepest discount!

Cheers,
garv
