In The Home The Kid

Key art for The Kid

Charles Chaplin is one of history's greatest cinema actors, writers and directors. For over fifty years Chaplin charmed audiences and critics with his timeless wit and candid take on the state of humanity in masterpieces such as The Great Dictator, Modern Times, The Gold Rush and more. Chaplin and his contribution to cinema have passed the test of time, he remains an adored icon even in the 21st century. Transmission Films and Paramount Home Entertainment are proud to present the definitive, fully-restored Chaplin collection.

In The Kid, Chaplin's infamous Tramp finds an abandoned baby in an alley whom he then takes under his wing. As he grows older, the child and the Tramp work together to survive until one day the doctor discovers the young boy is not the Tramp's son and welfare services attempt to take him away.

The Kid is notable as being one of the first feature length films to combine comedy and drama and turned co-star Jackie Coogan, then a vaudeville performer, into the first major child star of the movies. Made in 1921 The Kid is Charlie Chaplin at his very best.
