Generally thought of as one of Chaplin’s best films, Modern Times (1936) follows the story of the Little Tramp as he deals with the nearly-insurmountable struggles of the Great Depression. This poster for the 1950 reissue of the film focuses on the final scene in which the Tramp and his female companion are seen walking at dawn toward an uncertain, but hopeful future as the cogs of the mechanized age appear almost smothering in the foreground.

The bue background and the black cogs give a note of hope in a cruel world" Chaplin Movie Poster by Israel Perry and Jean Louis Capitaine.
