The light in vintage films canvas prints
Films first began as a silent medium wherein the dialogue was placed in the subtitles or was considered totally unnecessary. One of the earliest and probably most celebrated superstars of the silent film era was Sir Charles Chaplin. His character The Tramp, with its baggy trousers, cane, and lopsided tophat featured comedic reels that were understood by audiences universally, even without the help of dialogue. Modern critics consider this the purest form of cinema. Photowall honors this pioneering artist in one of its vintage films canvas prints entitled simply, “Kid”. With the advent of sound technology, and later on, color, more and more motion pictures were made and the degree of versatility and range that they encompassed became almost endless. Photowall honors these great cinematic achievements with their “Double Indemnity”, “Movie Poster Casablanca”, and “Rebel Without a Cause” pieces in their fine collection of vintage films canvas prints. The first one mentioned features the great cinema bad guy Edward G. Robinson in his breakout role in a motion picture. The second stars Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in this classic love story, set during the Second World War, which has remained a film classic to this day. And the third one shows the iconic James Dean in the film he will be most remembered for.
