An Original Vintage Theatrical Paperbacked Window Card Movie Poster (WC; measures 14" x 22" [36 x 56 cm]) (Learn More)

Modern Times, the classic 1936 Charlie Chaplin (Charles Chaplin) romantic automation assembly line factory worker comedy ("He stands alone as the greatest entertainer of modern times! No one on earth can make you laugh as heartily or touch your heart as deeply... the whole world laughs, cries and thrills to his priceless genius!"; "He surpasses his unforgettable performances in the 'Gold Rush' and 'City Lights', in this, the greatest of all his great comedies..."; "Written, Directed, and Produced by Charles Chaplin"; about a down and out man who has trouble fitting into the "modern" world, and he forms a friendship with a beautiful homeless woman) starring Charlie Chaplin (Charles Chaplin), Paulette Goddard, Henry Bergman, Tiny Sandford, Chester Conklin, and Mira McKinney

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this window card (with a great full-length image of Chaplin) is incredibly rare. We have only auctioned it once before, and that was 24 years ago! Also note that this poster has been paperbacked. What is paperbacking? This means the poster was backed onto a light paper backing (acid-free), that is similar in feel to that of the original poster (it means that the poster must be handled carefully, as the backing does not give it much added strength, but it is similar to having an unrestored poster, and yet it has been properly preserved). It is a similar process to linenbacking, except that most collectors use linenbacking for one-sheets and paperbacking for half-sheets, inserts, window cards.

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good. Prior to paperbacking, all of the blank borders of the card were trimmed off, and it had some pinholes, tears, and stains scattered through the card, including some in Chaplin's hat and face. Overall, the poster was in fair condition prior to paperbacking. A talented restorer did a pretty good job restoring this window card, and it presents fairly well from a reasonable viewing distance, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects when you look at it close up, so bear this in mind before placing a bid on this very rare window card.
