Part of The Charlie Chaplin Collection of DVDs. Featuring: 'By The Sea', 'His Regeneration'. 'Mabel At The Wheel.'
It's time for one more journey into the madcap world of that iconic and imperious star of the silver screen, Charlie Chaplin! 'By The Sea', filmed entirely on location at Crystal Pier in California, follows Chaplin's famous 'Tramp' as he attempts to charm some ladies on the beach. Needless to say, the ladies' husbands are not best pleased! 'His Regeneration', another Essanay Studios production, offer a rare look at Chaplin in a non-starring role. The cast features Marguerite Clayton, Lee Willard and Billy Anderson - the co-owner of Essaanay Studios and the 'A' in 'Ess-an-Ay'! Bringing this delightful collection to a close is 'Mabel At The Wheel' (aka 'Hot Finish'). This Keystone Studios production is notable not only because it's a Chaplin film that he didn't write or direct, but is one that his co-star (his female co-star, no less) did co-direct! Mabel Normand was a star in her own right, as well as one of Hollywood's first female writers and directors. This film is also noteworthy for the fact that Chaplin plays a villain, but it wasn't to last and he soon found himself winning over audiences' affections all around the world. And the rest, as they say, is history!
