Because of WWI, this 1915 Charlie Chaplin short film (Work, in the U.S.) took some time to get to Germany. The image shows him beleaguered by a ladder.It seems amazing today that a 20-minute short would warrant a poster of its own, but Chaplins films were phenomenal- earning something like 65 billion (as estimated in 1950s terms) worldwide with admissions of only a nickel or dime. Because of WWI, this 1915 Essanay short - titled Work in the U.S. took some time to get to Germany, where it was distributed by Humboldt Film, Berlin. It features Charlie as the assistant to a slave driving house painter who makes him do all the work. On a single job he gets into trouble with his equipment, flirts with the maid, saves the owner from being cuckolded by his wifes admirer and causes an explosion in the kitchen- all in the 20 minutes a two reeler runs. The image shows him beleaguered by a ladder- not a great resemblance, but a terrific design!
