Description :
The Little Tramp rescues an orphan from the streets and raises him as his own. Chaplin and Jackie Coogan make a miraculous pair in this clever and innovative marriage of sentiment and slapstick, a story of pancakes, fistfights, and dodging social services and policemen - as the opening title card says, “a picture with a smile - and perhaps a tear.” An instant success in 1921, The Kid remains a masterwork of cinema.
