Chaplin’s first full-length feature, The Kid, is a silent masterpiece about a little tramp who discovers a little orphan and brings him up but is left desolate when the orphanage reclaims him. Chaplin directed, produced, and starred in the film, as well as composed the score.
Innovative in its combination of comedic and dramatic elements, The Kid is considered one of the greatest films of the silent era. Granville Redmond, a friend of Charlie Chaplin and subject of the museum’s current exhibition, plays an uncredited role as The Man’s friend.
