DescriptionThe Circus (United Artists, 1928). Folded, Very Fine/Near Mint. Swedish One Sheet (27.5" X 39.5").
The Motion Picture Academy considered The Circus to be Chaplin's last true silent film and so awarded a special Oscar specifically for "writing, acting, directing and producing" the film to the world famous comedian. This really wonderful Swedish poster for Charlie Chaplin's feature film captures what we always associate with the Little Tramp; his bowler hat, cane, tramps worn shoes and the mustache. This design was completely inspired. The poster shows only the most minimal wear to it and has a very faint diagonal crease that just started to show in the lower left corner.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
