Flicker Alley releases Chaplin at Keystone

No release date yet, but the list of musicians sounds truly mouthwatering: "Eric Beheim, Neil Brand, Antonio Coppola, Frederick Hodges, Stephen Horne, Robert Israel, Rodney Sauer, The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, Ethan Uslan, and Ken Winokur with Tillie’s Nightmare."

Chaplin at Keystone from Flicker Alley

Charles Chaplin came to Mack Sennett’s Keystone Studios as an unknown, and after a year, had not only established his character, but also achieved public recognition as a star comedian so that standees of his likeness outside theatres sufficed to attract audiences. Most of the original Keystone negatives were simply printed away and the survival of all but a few of these films depends upon a few original prints, a larger number of reissue prints, and some duped prints from later years. That all but one of the films exists is, of course, due to Chaplin’s enormous subsequent popularity.

With the support of Association Chaplin (France), 35mm full aperture, early-generation materials (with only a few exceptions) were gathered on almost all the films in this international collaboration and were painstakingly pieced together by the National Film and Television Archive of the British Film Institute, L’Immagine Ritrovata in Bologna, Italy, and the UCLA Film and Television Archive; then digitally refurbished by Lobster Films in Paris.

10/26? Right in time for CHAPLIN IN THE HEARTLAND!
A Thief Catcher, the Keystone set, the Syd bio and the conference - what a great year for the Chaplins and the Chapliners.

Flicker Alley says 35 films will be included in this set. So, which is the lucky 35th film? A THIEF CATCHER or a CGI recreation of HER FRIEND THE BANDIT?

EDIT: I just noticed this bit in the Slapsticon thread, so it looks like A THIEF CATCHER will be included in a different set. Great news, though a pity it (understandably) won't also be included in the Chaplin Keystone set. "35 films" must be a misprint.

We were told that there's going to be a new DVD set covering Mack Sennett's entire career from a company called CineMuseum, and that "A Thief Catcher" will be included.
