    Chase Me Charlie (Essanay, 1917). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Graced with a lovely scene between everyone's favorite silent comedian and Edna Purviance, this charming stone litho poster belies the contentious history and bitter controversy behind the film's creation. After Chaplin's contract expired in 1915, Essanay took his recently released two-reel comedy Burlesque on Carmen, added a number of outtakes and a new subplot featuring Ben Turpin, and released the film again as a clunky four reeler called A Burlesque of Carmen. The problem was, they did it without Chaplin's permission. He sued the studio over what he believed to be unscrupulous copyright infringement, and ultimately lost, allowing Essanay to reconstruct and reissue his films however they saw fit. The result was this compilation of Chaplin's clips and unused footage from The Tramp, By the Sea, The Bank, Shanghaied, A Night Out, In the Park, The Champion, The Woman, and His New Job. A beautiful poster in great shape, there has only been touchup to the folds, small chips in the bottom and top left borders, and a few creases. There has been some airbrushing in the left border. Very Fine on Linen.
