Beautiful hand painted original vintage movie poster of the Charlie Chaplin silent comedy, The Kid (1921) for sale.
This is an actual surviving original Charlie Chaplin movie poster of The Kid, which was released in India by the National Film Development Corporation of India (NFDC).
The Kid was Charlie Chaplin's first full-length movie, making this old hand drawn poster highly collectible.
Designed, printed and circulated in India somewhere in the 1970s/1980s during the film's release in India, this poster was originally intended for publicity but never ended up being used.
This expertly hand drawn minimalistic original poster features a stunning portrait of Charlie Chaplin in a still from the film, where he is seen holding on to his adopted son. A tiny black and white silhouette of Chaplin in his tramp avatar from the film is seen pasted at the bottom.
The Kid is a 1921 silent film written, produced, directed by and starring Charlie Chaplin. This was Charlie Chaplin's first full-length movie. It was a huge success and featured an intriguing mix of comedy and drama, leading it to be labeled as a “dramedy”.
In December 2011, The Kid was chosen to be preserved in the Library of Congress' National Film Registry.
