In 1916, after a 2-year long career, Chaplin is already the most paid actor in the world. He signs for 12 new comedies with Mutual Film Corp. He has his own studio, and total control of the production of his films : unprecedented.

These 12 comedies shot between 1916 and 1917 are a fireworks of humor, invention and fun, maybe what Chaplin has done best in all his career. Success after success, the character of The tramp becomes more complex, and films like The Vagabond, One A.m. Or the Immigrant are jewels of skill and sophistication.
 
These ultimate restorations  are the result of 3 long years of research in the world, and technological achievements. One century after their first release, these films do not have a wrinkle, and the pleasure of watching them is intact. Chaplin said "Shooting the Mutual comedies was the best moment of my life"
