Charlie authenticates the main title card for "Sunnyside", 1919

In 1918, Chaplin began featuring his signature on movie posters as well as the main title cards of the films themselves in an effort to avoid confusion with the many Chaplin reissues that were being released under new titles and then advertised as the latest Chaplin comedy. If you didn't see Charlie's signature, it was not a genuine new release.
