Chaplin returned to his music hall roots to make this bitter sweet romantic comedy drama.
With a memorable score, the film was a big hit in the UK, although in retrospect it probably has too much sermonising and talking, most of the time.
The best exception is the scene which coupled Chaplin with Buster Keaton for the only time, playing two old performers re-creating their past, in a hilarious silent sketch with just the two of them, a piano and a violin.
This original UK Quad poster features multiple illustrations of Chaplin as Calvero, with the limelight effect around the title and borders.
(And yes, Limelight Movie Art was indeed named after this film)
This poster has been conservation linen backed. It was in great complete condition before backing, and the conservator performed the backing in the "European style", meaning that no attempt was made to repair or restore any minor flaws, so the four minor tape stains in the border in each of the corners remain.
