THE KID (1921)

Charlie Chaplin was already an international star when he decided to break out of the short-film format and make his first full-length feature. The huge success of Chaplin’s first feature opened the doors for Keaton, Lloyd and others to move beyond short comedies. In The Kid, Chaplin Stars as his lovable Tramp character, this time raising an orphan (played by a young Jackie Coogan) he has rescued from the streets. Chaplin and Coogan make a marvelous pair in this marriage of sentiment and slapstick, a film that is, as its opening title card states, “a picture with a smile—and perhaps, a tear.” (USA, 1921, 68 min., NR, B&W | dir. Charlie Chaplin)
