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):
