Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Charlie Chaplin. 1921, 68 mins. Digital projection. With Charlie Chaplin, Edna Purviance, Jackie Coogan. Combining Chaplin’s trademark quirky comedy with a tinge of dramatic sentimentality, The Kid is a silent gem that remains a hilarious delight. When the Little Tramp finds an abandoned child on the street, they join to form one of American cinema’s most famous partnerships. Chaplin’s first feature-length film, which he also wrote, The Kid made Jackie Coogan a famous child star, and proved Chaplin’s mastery on all sides of the camera. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
