    Description

    A Dog's Life (First National, 1918). Lobby Card Set (11" X 14"). Down on his luck, Charlie finds an only friend -- a dog named Scraps -- to accompany him as they search for food. Along the way, Charlie meets a cabaret girl (played by longtime Chaplin co-star Edna Purviance) with whom he falls in love. Eventually, Charlie recovers some stolen money and buys a farm where he and his girl can live with their little dog, Scraps. This was Chaplin's first picture for First National. We think it's fair to say that Charlie Chaplin was the world's most renowned comedian and his image was so unique that people who have never seen one of his films still know who he is. His impact on the cinema was so profound that his posters and lobby cards are still highly valued -- eighty five years later! This has to been one of Charlie's best sets of cards from this period in his career. Very Fine+.
