18 classic comedies starring the legendary Charley Chase, with frequent co-star, Thelma Todd

Comedian Charley Chase was a consistent box-office money and fun-maker for Producer Hal Roach during the Silent and Sound Eras. Volume One is the beginning of the first comprehensive collection of Chase's Hal Roach talkie comedies, culled from 1930-31, years in which many of his films featured Charley's frequent leading lady the lovely and vivacious Thelma Todd, later a Hal Roach star too.

This volume includes such Charley Chase classics as 'Whispering Whoopee,' 'All Teed Up,' 'Looser than Loose,' and what may be considered one of Chase's best short comedies, 'The Pip From Pittsburg,' with the Spanish version as an added bonus.
