Star Entertainment acquire rights of Chaplin films

Star Entertainment has tied up with Academy Entertainment of the US to acquire video and TV rights to 20 hours of Charlie Chaplin short films. Besides, Star has bought out similar rights to famed comic creations like Superman, Daffy Duck and Popeye from Academy.

Star's has also tied up with one of the UK’s biggest television software companies, DK Vision, to lap up a spread of children’s educational and information videos which DK Vision had produced for BBC TV.

Twenty hours of Charlie videos cover a chunk of the short films which Chaplin had made. The Daffy, Super-man and Popeye rights, for the time being, add up to around 10 hours. Star proposes to appoint an exclusive distribution company through a licensing route to market the videos to various retail outlets nationwide. The DK Vision brands include BBC’s Eyewitness series.
