Kid, The
Directed by - Charlie Chaplin

(1921) - B&W - 68 min
The Kid was written and directed by Charlie Chaplin, who also starred as the Tramp character. It is amazing how well Chaplin tells the story in spite of the state of film in 1921. The story still holds up and there's a tenderness conveyed by the film that is endearing.

Part one
Intro, B&W, The story is terrific. Charlie plays his Tramp character. One day, he gets a baby and a note asking him to take care of the child. He does a lovely job of doing his best.

Part two
Part two is really funny! The scene with the baby in the swing, nursing on a coffee pot is classic. Later, I had to laugh when the little kid breaks all those windows with a rock, before getting busted by the cop on his beat.

Part three
Part three gives some background on the rich people in the story. This is contrasted with the humble surroundings of young Charlie and the Kid. Plus - a very funny fight scene, where Charlie takes on a big muscle man in a turtleneck.
