    Description

    Over the Rhine With Charlie (Universal, 1918). One Sheet (27" X 41"). This cartoon film short ran six minutes and was animated and directed by Otto Messmer of later "Felix the Cat" fame, under producer Pat Sullivan. Universal made a total of five films in this animated series that featured a caricatured Charlie Chaplin. The story was told that Chaplin enjoyed the shorts and Messmer claimed that the series gave him the opportunity to study Chaplin's pantomime and movements, which profoundly affected his future work. A poster for any of the "Chaplin" animated shorts had never before been seen before the appearance of this copy. This is a rare opportunity to aquire a "Little Tramp" cartoon one sheet. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
