The Kid (1921) Review


Excellent
Very precious Chaplin film -- the first he directed, produced, wrote, and starred in. The story's simple: The tramp adopts an orphaned baby; at first he learns parenting the trial-by-fire way. Years later he's schooling the kid in the finer points of being a hobo. All good, clean, family fun -- and a huge hit for Chaplin in 1921. Lots of very clever touches can be found in this brief film, and it stands up well today.
