Film: City Lights (1931)
Year poster printed: 1950 (theatrical re-release)
Country: United States
Size: 27 in x 41 in (69 cm x 104 cm)
This is an original one-sheet movie poster from 1950 for a theatrical re-release of City Lights (1931) starring Charlie Chaplin, Virginia Cherrill, Florence Lee, Harry Myers, Al Ernest Garcia, and Hank Mann. Charlie Chaplin also directed the classic, silent film.
The poster measures 27"x 41" and is in good to very good condition. It was folded at the time of printing. Most folds flatten out nicely for framing and are often desirable for vintage, collectible movie posters. There is a small separation at the top cross-fold and the top edge of the poster. There is minor edge wear and surface creasing in a few spots and some old tape at the bottom-right edge. The poster would display nicely when framed and is also an excellent candidate for linen-backing.
Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying). The black squares in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This very rare and collectible poster, printed in 1950 to promote a theatrical re-release of City Lights, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
