    Description

    Sunnyside (First National, 1919). Six Sheet (81" X 81").
    After leaving Mutual Studios in 1919, Charlie Chaplin signed a lucrative deal with First National. Mutual had paid Chaplin more than $600,000 to make twelve films and sought to renew. Instead, Chaplin signed with First National for $1.25 million to make eight pictures. Still in his twenties, he was one of the richest entertainers in the world. In exchange for producing eight two-reelers, which First National would finance and distribute, Chaplin was given virtually unlimited creative control, a situation he had long sought. The result was a series of pictures - a couple of them feature length - which stand today as some of the finest silent comedies ever brought to the screen. This picture was the third produced under Chaplin's new arrangement, in which he stars as a lovestruck farmhand pining for the lovely Edna Purviance, a frequent collaborator in Chaplin's best films. This beautiful six sheet poster is completely unrestored and in its original state of six separate sheets. There is very minor crossfold separation, fold wear, a tear in the right border, and light stains in the top border. Extremely rare and simply gorgeous, this stone litho poster is an incredible piece of cinematic history! Folded, Very Fine-.
