(1921, Charlie Chaplin) Charlie meets his match in the person of 6-year-old Jackie Coogan, a streetwise ragamuffin raised since infancy by the Little Tramp. The first true Chaplin feature, an instant classic, interweaves sublime slapstick with some of the greatest tear-jerking moments in cinema history. DCP. 68 mins.
“Nowhere is the genuinely poignant sense of human needs and ideals that Chaplin creates through the collision of sentiment with the physical and everyday more poetically achieved.”
– Tom Gunning
