An original 1918 poster for Charlie Chaplin’s A Dog’s Life is to star in a sale of Richard Attenborough’s personal collection.

Valued at £10,000-15,000 ($15,479-23,218), it will join a selection of memorabilia and other artefacts at Bonhams London on October 21.

Richard Attenborough was a much loved British actor and director who died in 2014.

His son, the director Michael Attenborough, comments: "My parents had impeccable taste, they never bought anything as an investment, but simply because they loved it.

"They lived by the firm conviction that beautiful surroundings had the power to humanise, to enrich one's relationship with the world."
