    Description

    A Dog's Life (First National, 1918). Three Sheet (41" X 81").
    Charlie Chaplin's initial film for First National Pictures, this 40 minute comedic delight was also 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 terrific comedy, along with his regular co-star, Edna Purviance. Beautiful restoration has addressed several tears in the borders and image area, a large tear from the top border through Chaplin's head, considerable paper loss in the borders, chips in the fold lines, and holes in the body of the poster. Airbrush work is apparent throughout, and this extremely rare poster now has an exceptionally presentable appearance. Good+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $8,000 - $16,000.
