OLDIE GOLDIES: The Kid (1921)

For this week's "Oldie Goldies" I finally watched my first silent film - The Kid. Having never been exposed to Chaplin before, I was pleasantly surpised by how engaging the film was. It really showed how effective you can be with mere facial expressions and physical comedy.

Classic Scene
"Rooftop Pursuit"

Classic Characters
The Kid (Jack Coogan)

The Tramp (Charlie Chaplin)

Classic Music

Did you know?
The film made Coogan, then a vaudeville performer, into the first major child star of the movies.
