Collection of eleven classics starring Charlie Chaplin. 'The Chaplin Revue' (1959) features three shorts which comprise: 'A Dog's Life', 'Shoulder Arms' and 'The Pilgrim'. In 'The Circus' (1928) Chaplin's famous Tramp character finds refuge from the law with the circus and falls in love with the owner's step-daughter. In 'City Lights' (1931) the Tramp falls in love with a blind flower girl (Virginia Cherrill) and befriends a drunken millionaire (Harry Meyers). In 'The Gold Rush' (1925) Chaplin plays a hapless pan-handler drawn to Klondike in the famous gold rush of 1898. In 'The Great Dictator' (1940), which spoofs the rise of Nazism, an amnesiac Jewish barber is mistaken for the dictator of Tomania, Adenoid Hynkel (both played by Chaplin). In 'The Kid' (1921), Chaplin's first feature film, a tramp raises an abandoned child among the slums, while fighting the police and other agencies who want to take the boy into care. In 'A King in New York' (1957) King Shahdov (Chaplin) heads to New York to escape a revolution in his own country but is seen as a communist and, as a result, subjected to the McCarthy trials. In 'Limelight' (1952) a music hall veteran (Chaplin) rescues a young dancer (Claire Bloom) from suicide, helps her career and watches her rise to stardom, just as he is being forgotten. 'Modern Times' (1936), in which Chaplin makes his last appearance as The Tramp, is an attack on the lack of humanity in modern industry and shows the tramp's struggle with factory machinery, poverty and starvation in the Depression years. In 'Monsieur Verdoux' (1947) Chaplin plays a family man who supports his wife and child by courting rich widows and murdering them. In 'A Woman of Paris' (1923) the plans of lovers Marie St.Clair (Edna Purviance) and Jean Millet (Carl Miller) to be together are disrupted by various circumstances.
