First email and a few others, over the years...

Hi,
I am a big Charles Chaplin fan. I have many of his films on 8mm film. I have recently purchased the available films on DVD. However there are a number of his films that are not included in these DVDs.

I would appreciate any help you can give me in finding the following Chaplain films on DVD.
1.Mabel at the Wheel,

2. Caught in the Rain,
3. Her Friend the Bandit,
4. Mabel's Busy day,
5.The Property Man,
6. Gentleman of Nerve,
7. His Trysting Place,
8. His Prehistoric Past,
9. The Professor,
10.How to Make Movies,
11. Show People.

If I am able to obtain them, I would have a almost complete collection of his films. He is the best of the best. Your listings are outstanding in providing excellent information on him.

You are to be commended. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
Happy Easter. Maj. Fouad K. Aide (US Army)
