  A Limited Edition 2-disc Blu-ray set and a 2-disc DVD set of Charlie Chaplin’s Mutual Comedies will be released by the BFI on 18 May 2015.

The collection features music by acclaimed silent film composer Carl Davis and a raft of special features.

Among the classics included here are The Immigrant, which endures as a comic masterpiece; Easy Street – a watershed moment in Chaplin’s career; The Floorwalker, which shows his inventive and balletic use of mechanical props; The Vagabond, where he successfully combines pathos and comedy to create a lyrical love story and The Pawnshop which is famous for the hilarious routine in which he dissects an alarm clock. There's a clip from Easy Street at the link above.
