The Kid

“A comedy with a smile – and perhaps a tear” – so opens this 1921 silent comedy-drama that will kick off the kids-friendly block at the Middlebury Marquis on Friday, August 28th at 10:30am. The film follows Charlie the Tramp as he finds The Orphan and takes him in, and their adventures that ensue. Written, producer, directed by and starring Charlie Chaplin, “The Kid” was Chaplin’s feature directorial debut and enjoyed huge success at its release. The Library of Congress preserved the film in the United States National Film Registry in 2011.
