Description

    A Dog's Life (First National, 1918). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    Called "His First Million Dollar Picture" on the poster, this was Charlie Chaplin's initial film for First National Pictures and, clocking in at 40 minutes, his first three reeler. Chaplin's contract with First National gave him unprecedented creative control over his work for the studio and he used it to create some of his best short comedies. Scraps the dog co-starred in this delightful comedy, along with his regular co-star, Edna Purviance. There were several tears in the borders and field of this poster, a large tear from the top through Chaplin's head, considerable paper loss on the borders, chips in the fold lines, and large holes in the body of the poster. All this has been beautifully restored, giving this extremely rare poster a wonderfully fresh appearance. Airbrush work is apparent throughout. Good+ on Linen.
