Charlie Chaplin 5 DVD Set from Passport Video

"I received this DVD set yesterday, and here is my review:
All the movies have watermark on them "The CHARLIE CHAPLEN (not mystype!!!) Collection", placed on right-down side of screen. Watermark is sized like big TV station logo, and when scene is bright you could just barely see it, but when the scene is dark, it shows quite good. In my opinion this is unsatisfied, because I want "clear screen" view, without any watermarks.
I bought this Collection because I' like to find his Keystone movies in better conditions then I have them already. Keystone's here presented are in my opinion overaly in better condition from the other available compilations, but unfortenately, watermarked.
Essanay studio collection is not completed, there are missing a 5 titles, Mutual studio is complete, and the First National movies are here, but without "the Kid" and "the Pilgrim". Quality of this film is so-so, not good like Image Entertaiment or MK2 editions.
The final line: Will I buy this if I knew about watermark? Probably not, because quality of most movies I'm interested in (Keystone's) are maybe little better or the same like I have already, and all other films are available in better, restored editions"
Great quality, exept for a watermark...

"This collection contains all of Chaplin's shorts, only it's missing five Essanays, and The Pilgrim. If you'd like to see Charlie's early work, this is a must-have. You won't find much better picture quality anywhere else. There's only one problem that I can identify, there is a watermark playing through all of the shorts. For those who are unaware of what a watermark is, it's like a telivison station logo. Most of the time, you can hardly see it, but when the screen is dark, it's quite visible. I wouldn't mind the watermark if they only had spelled his name right. It reads "THE CHARLIE CHAPLEN COLLECTION". . . aside from this flaw, great set. And, even if I knew about the watermark, I'd purchase this anyway with no hesitation."
