Description

    A Dog's Life (Pathé, R-1920s). Half Sheet (22" X 28"). Charlie Chaplin was perhaps the most famous person in the world at the time of this film's release! In this classic short subject, Chaplin, down on his luck, finds an only friend -- a dog named Scraps -- to accompany him as they search for food. Along the way, Charlie meets a cabaret girl (played by longtime Chaplin co-star Edna Purviance) with whom he falls in love. Eventually, Charlie recovers some stolen money and buys a farm where he and his girl can live with their little dog. This poster was a very early re-issue by Pathé Pictures in the1920s. Paper from this re-release is nearly as hard to find as the original material and just as beautiful! The poster has slight fold wear with extra vertical folds, edge wear, corner bends and a tear in the right border. Finding a better image of the Little Tramp may be a very tough task as this is a splendid layout. Fine+.

    Several people contacted me who felt similarly about the way the auction was handled. At this point in my career I'm much more concerned with the respectful professionalism in all forms when it comes to my life's work. I truly appreciate your efforts in t
