DescriptionModern Times (United Artists, 1936). Fine/Very Fine. Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
Although the Silent Era had faded into the past, film auteur Charlie Chaplin reprised his role as the Little Tramp for one more feature film. In this tale, the Tramp finds himself woefully at odds with modern technology, not unlike Chaplin trying to survive in a motion picture era complete with sound. This is considered to be one of Chaplin's greatest films and this beautiful title card with Chaplin pictured with co-star Paulette Goddard is highly coveted. This title lobby card has had restoration applied to a few creases, a couple of minor tears and chips, mostly unobtrusive stains, and a thin surface scratch in the title. The borders and parts of the white background have been airbrushed.
Estimate: $2,000 - $4,000.
