Copy of a promotional poster for the 1921 classic film, The Kid, which was written and directed by Chaplin and starred him in his famous role as the Tramp. Coogan (who was billed as Jack Coogan) played the title character, an abandoned boy whom the Tramp rescues.The first great screen comedian, and arguably the best of all time, CHARLES "CHARLIE" CHAPLIN (1889-1977) was also a talented director and screenwriter. In the silent era, his many outstanding films included Tillie's Punctured Romance (1914), Gold Rush (1925) and City Lights (1931) as well as The Kid. He was less consistently successful in the talking era, the great strength of "the Little Tramp" having been physical comedy, but his noteworthy films included Modern Times (1936), The Great Dictator (1940) and Limelight (1952). Child actor JACKIE COOGAN (1914-1984), a vaudeville stage performer since age four, was tapped by Chaplin to appear in A Day's Pleasure in 1919. Two years later, Coogan starred with Chaplin in his masterpiece, The Kid, beginning a rise to stardom that would result in Coogan becoming one of the highest paid film actors of the day. The two actors reunited in 1972, when Chaplin returned to Hollywood to receive a life achievement Academy Award. Usual black marks from photocopying. Fine condition. Two items. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 23x16½.
