We have just been informed from one of our fans in Europe, that the restored Charlie Chaplin Keystone Films maybe released in spring 2009. Of course, we know things can change, as BFI is still working hard in finishing up this collection. It is certainly something to watch for this coming year.
UPDATE July 2010 - The Chaplin at Keystone collection is scheduled to be released in the USA by Flicker Alley in October 2010. LINK
UPDATE January 29, 2010 - CNN REPORT ABOUT THE CHAPLIN KEYSTONES
UPDATE: December 2009 - Keystone DVD collection apparently is now on delay until 2011?
More information: Here is the link to BFI about the Chaplin Keystone Restoration Project and the list of films.
About the films: Interview with Glenn Mitchell, author of The Chaplin Encyclopaedia, about the restored Keystone films from BFI.
UPDATE: February 10, 2009 - The latest we are hearing that the films looked to be set for release in the Fall of 2009. More details, as they come.
UPDATE: April 7, 2009 - One would think there be more about this now, but unless only known in the private circles, haven't seen any real movement on this yet. So just keep checking. Unlike the Hollywood Series (with copyright issues that stopped that DVD release), this shouldn't have the same issues, but taking time (and money) getting it to together, one would have to guess.
