Ha! It's actually one of my favorites that you've done, Tom (and I've been a fan of yours since starting the hobby--your SW set was one of my first purchases). Really great work on this! That one and the Gold Rush are just fantastic. Great Dictator is wonderful, but would feel a little weird to hang. And I'm kind of surprised that there's The Circus but not Modern Times or City Lights. Maybe more on the way?

Cool series! Probably a licensing thing, but I would've also liked to see Modern Times and City Lights represented (over The Circus and The Great Dictator). The Burton poster if probably my favorite of the lot though. I hope these are popular and there are more releases for silent comedies (particularly the work of Buster Keaton, the undisputed master, imo).

Agreed. More Chaplin, and then Nautilus or Black Dragon should work on the Keaton license--especially The General and Sherlock Jr.

Agreed! I'm a big Chaplin and Keaton fan.

This is a nice series. Great work, all!

Huh. I thought the Whalen was one of the stronger pieces from him in a while and maybe my favorite of the bunch.

:cheers:

Edit: Well, that's embarrassing on my part. :lol:
I'm not someone else.

I really want to see a Buster Keaton series! I've been searching, but I can't find anything of his on Expresso.
Anyone else have any luck?


I plan on trying to get one of the Chaplin prints, but I'm just not as familiar with his work. Which one of these prints do y'all see being the most popular? Gold Rush?

By the way, I could also watch Georges Melies films all day long.
I already purchased 'A Trip to the Moon'-Phantom City Creative. (My favorite poster).

Haven't seen anything for his early stuff. Mondo released a cool poster for the 1965 short film, 'Film' that he starred in (written by Samuel Beckett).

Great poster. Gifted one to my mom and she has it framed up in the TV room :pint:

Wow, I never saw that Keaton poster. Thanks for sharing it!

As for which Chaplin will be the most popular--as you can read here, it looks like people are happy with all of them. There doesn't seem to be a clear winner. I may just get a set and then decide later which ones to hang and which (if any) to trade.

Agreed. Taster's choice.

Also, man, are the title treatments on these GREAT.
