CHAPLIN 15th Anniversary Edition On DVD
From Lionsgate Home Ent., comes the 15th anniversary release of CHAPLIN, which includes digitally remastered print, three new featurettes plus a never-before-seen home movie of Charlie Chaplin.
Robert Downey, Jr. captures the essence of comic genius Charlie Chaplin in a compelling, nuanced performance that earned him Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for Best Actor. Director Richard Attenborough's well-crafted portrait traces Chaplin's impoverished London upbringing, extraordinary success as an actor and director, his troubled marriages, scandalous affairs, shocking exile to Switzerland and his triumphant return to Hollywood. The star-studded cast includes Kevin Kline, Dan Aykroyd, Milla Jovovich, Diane Lane and Geraldine Chaplin (as her own grandmother), and Downey's astonishing mimicry of Chaplin's gait, gestures and accents complete a dazzlingly authentic portrait of one of cinema's first pop culture icons.
CHAPLIN was a 1993 theatrical release with vfx by Illusion Arts.

--Limited Edition Plastic O-Card with Reveal to "Little Tramp" underneath
--"All At Sea" home movie of Charlie Chaplin vacationing in Catalina, California
--"Strolling into the Sunset" Featurette with Director Richard Attenborough
