Alternate Chaplin version

PostFri Mar 03, 2017 11:28 pm

This abridgement of THE IDLE CLASS comes from Argentina and the telecine was done at 24 fps. It seems that this is not the typical version from Chaplin, but one lifted from the original release of the film.

For the most part, the versions distributed in Argentina (in this case, by Max Glücksmann who also did it in Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile and Bolivia) were the American prints.
