(4 out of 5 stars)
"The collection includes 15 movies, out of which only two are silet movies: The Gold Rush and The General. There is one Buster Keaton sound movie from the early '30s which is quite nice (if I remember corectly the name of the movie is Speak Easily). This is the first DVD.
The second DVD includes: Mr. Robinson Crusoe (Douglas Fairbanks Sr.); Palooka and Judge Priest (John Ford, director). I can honestly say that from this DVD only Palooka is not worth looking at.
The third DVD includes two Carole Lombard movies(My Man Godfrey and Nothing Sacred) and one Leo McCarey movie (The Milky Way). All three movies are a delight to watch, the only thing is that Nothing Sacred is presented in the coloured version and the quality is not that good (from time to time the image becomes confussing).
The fourth DVD included My Girl Friday (H. Hawks), That Uncertain Feeling (Ernst Lubitsch) and another one which I can not remember unfortunatelly!). The first movie I have already seen it and its great. The lubitsch movie i did not have the chance to see it yet...
The fith DVD includes Life with Father, Inspector general and Father's Little Dividend. Only the last one I had the chance to watch and it a nice, witty classic comedy with great performances from Spencer, Elisabeth and Joan Benett.
Conclusion: if you have the chance to buy this box you won't regret it if you are a fan of classic comedy. Great value for such a small price."
