Sprocket Vault is slated to release Charley Chase: The Hal Roach Talkies Volume One 1930-31 at a to be determined date.

The two-disc DVD set is slated to consist of 18 shorts. It's said that the set will use restorations from the best possible elements.

  • I saw some of Chase's Roach shorts earlier this year on TCM and enjoyed them. Glad to see they're getting a DVD release.

    I have a few collections of his silent films and all of his Columbia shorts, the latter of which I'm watching this weekend.  Ironically, the stuff I want to see the most are his later silents, which seem to be in limbo, and his Roach talkies, which I've only seen a few, so I'm really looking forward to this collection.  Now if only the Columbia and Roach Harry Langdon shorts would be released.

  • Just pre-ordered mine.  Word going around is later volumes are not a guarantee unless this first volume sells, so if you like Charley Chase and have extra moolah, I hope others do the same.  Really looking forward to this collection.

  • Thought I'd post this post from Richard M. Roberts here, to clear up some stuff about the release of this set (including that the Amazon page is not official):

  • Any further word on this set?  The Amazon page did indeed turn to be bogus and I've yet to hear anything else?  Anybody find any word on this set I'm failing to find?

  • The last thing I knew was that the set is definitely in the works but it's not ready yet. The Amazon pre-order page never should have been up when it was.
