Extraordinary iconic vintage pearl-finish 5 x 7 full-length photo of The Tramp belting out a laugh, floridly signed in fountain pen, “Faithfully, Chas. Chaplin.” Some trivial edge and corner creasing, some light, brushed surface marks, and a bit of light silvering, otherwise fine condition. Chaplin describes his very first transformation into Mack Sennett’s now legendary character, recollecting a very natural, almost instantaneous acclamation: “The moment I was dressed, the clothes and makeup made me feel the person he was. I began to know him, and by the time I walked onstage he was fully born.” An exceedingly rare and well-preserved example of Chaplin in his iconic character. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
