In, the center of the poster will be a photograph of Charlie, surrounded by the messages of congratulations from the most famous personages in the world—the great screen stars.

The messages will be signed by Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Rudolph Valentino, William S. Hart, Norma Talmadge, Constance Tal- madge and Buster Keaton. What better commendation 'can the public get as an incentive for seeing “The Gold Rush” than the glowing tributes the biggest stars paid to Charlie Chaplin the night of the world opening of his picture? The telegrams are copies of those sent personally by the above named stars on the opening night. Hollywood’s motion picture industry does a tremendous business with the Postal Telegraph Company. In return, this great organization is entering heartily into the proposal to let the world see what the biggest stars in their personal telegrams think of “The Gold Rush.” “The Gold Rush” opened at Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre, Hollywood, to the most brilliant assemblage which ever graced such an occasion. Telegrams in great volume inundated Chaplin, proclaiming “The Gold Rush” the greatest screen achievement, not only in comedy but in all the field of photoplay art, since “The Birth of a Nation.” This tie-up was arranged through the courtesy of E. L. Thornbourgh, national advertising director of the Postal Telegraph Company, who has offered all the facilities of his company to assure perfect co-operation. On another page in the press book of “The Gold Rush” exhibitors will find copies of the telegrams used in this tie-up.
