These early Chans display the amazing creativity and daring physicality that made him the legitimate heir to Buster Keaton in motion picture hierarchy. His bicycle chase in 'Project A', alone, puts him in the company of Keaton, Chaplin, and the Marx Brothers, all in a single sequence. By the time of the 'Condors', his skill as a filmmaker has visibly and editorially improved, as has his genius at incorporating humor into battle sequences, but throughout it all, what you see is what he actually did, without CG and without a stunt double.
