The Charley Chase Talkies : 1929-1940 Hardback


In The Charley Chase Talkies: 1929-1940, James L. Neibaur examines, film-by-film, the comedian's 79 short subjects at Roach and Columbia studios.

The first book to examine any portion of Chase's filmography, this volume discusses the various methods Chase employed in his earliest sound films, his variations on common themes, his use of music, and the modification of his character as he reached the age of 40.

Neibaur also acknowledges the handful of feature film appearances Chase made during this period.
