Limelight premiere poster

In Stock


An original prop created for the production of Chaplin, the 1992 biographical feature starring Robert Downey Jr. under the direction of Richard Attenborough which details the life of screen icon Charlie Chaplin.

This is an original poster created by the production for use in the scenes where Charlie Chaplin (Robert Downey Jr.) attends the premiere of his 1952 picture Limelight. The custom made poster is actually printed on rigid 6mm foamcore board and the design features various elements borrowed from the period posters created to promote the release of the original film stylised in a similar manner to a UK Quad but in the format of a US one sheet poster. Although this exact piece is not seen in the final cut of the movie the various cinemagoers can be seen holding programmes of identical design.

The poster measures approximately 39.5" x 25.5", marginally smaller than a standard one sheet poster, it remains in excellent condition with some minor edge and corner wear, generally very fine.

A highly displayable artefact from the production of this Academy Award nominated biopic.
