    Description

    Modern Times (United Artists, 1936). Very Fine on Linen. Pre-War Belgian (23.75" X 31.25").
    Done as a sort of tragi-comedic commentary on the desperate employment and fiscal conditions during the Great Depression, Modern Times is one of Charlie Chaplin's most compelling film creations. This would be Chaplin's final silent film, and also marked the last appearance of the "Little Tramp." Filmed between 1932 and 1936, Chaplin directed, wrote, scored, and produced the film himself, and he also starred in his own 'one-man show' with his then wife and kindred spirit Paulette Goddard. This was Chaplin's first film after his successful City Lights, and was released nine years after the advent of "talkies." A Heritage first, this rare poster has some light touchup to fold wear and a few very minor tears. The right border has a minor unobtrusive stain that is still visible. Very Fine on Linen.
