The Kid

The Kid-Chaplin's first feature length film was released on February 6, 1921. Both critics and the public considered it a masterpiece. "A picture with a smile and perhaps a tear"; words in the opening title sum up the picture's range of emotions. In my opinion, the scene reuniting the Kid, Jackie Coogan, with Charlie, ranks as one the most heart wrenching in cinema. The mixture of comedy and tragedy is absolutely amazing.
