    Description

    Modern Times (United Artists, 1936). Window Card (14" X 22").
    Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi's comments, Chaplin said "machinery with only consideration of profit" and automation in general was not good for workers. It was in the midst of the Depression and with so many people out of work, Chaplin's view of corporations, automation and the unemployed common man made this film a major hit, even though it was still primarily a silent film in the sound era. The image of Chaplin on this window card is "quintessential Chaplin" as he appears as his beloved character, the Little Tramp. Prior to restoration, it had some pinholes and a small tear in the left border. The imprint area's stamp is upside down. The card has some sporadic airbrushing in the yellow field, getting thicker towards the bottom. The borders and upper imprint area have also been partially airbrushed. Very Fine-.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
