Just wondering if anyone's picked up The Black Book. It's the first of these titles that's held any interest for me, but I'm hesitant to purchase an overpriced DVD-R when the prints of this film have been so notoriously bad. Thanks!

I would assume SONY used original masters for this DVD-R release. Have not heard any comments as yet to the quality. The DVD certainly can't be like the awful PD's that are available. It is a bit pricey as well. Hopefully there will be a sale on the Columbia titles soon.

NoraCharles, someone commented on Digitalbits that the copy they just bought of THE BLACK BOOK looks very good. I know the PD prints that have been released are so dark you can barely make some of the scenes out.

Exciting news for Charley Chase fans, announced Nov. 28, 2012:

SONY/Columbia has announced the long-awaited DVD release of their Charley Chase shorts, Volume One.
Release date is expected to be January 1, 2013.

Shorts included:
Man Bites Lovebug (1937)
The Mind Needer (1938)
The Chump Takes a Bump (1939)
Rattling Romeo (1939)
Skinny the Moocher (1939)
The Awful Goof (1939)
The Heckler (1940)
South of the Boudoir (1940)
A Nag in the Bag (1938) (Starring Smith & Dale, directed by Charley Chase).

With only 8 of the total of 20 Chase shorts included in this volume, I expect they may spread the remaining 12 out over two more volumes and include more shorts Chase directed starring others.

Check their site for further updates:
