Description by OLDIES.com:

Charlie Chaplin's first full-length directorial effort, The Kid, which he also wrote, produced and starred in, is widely regarded as one of Hollywood's great enduring masterpieces. "A comedy with a smile -- and perhaps a tear," he successfully blended humor with pathos while launching the career of Jackie Coogan as the irresistible 5 year-old. Due to its cultural, historical and aesthetic significance, The Kid was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress in 2011.

Early one morning, Charlie, the little tramp, discovers an infant boy in the trash with a note imploring the finder to "love and care for," the child. Despite his limited means, he provides a loving environment and somehow manages to raise the boy to the age of five. However, when the authorities get wind of the child living in abandoned buildings with a tramp, they seize the boy. En route to the orphanage, Charlie intercepts the driver. The happy pair are reunited on the streets, as they remain one jump ahead of the law, determined that they will not be separated again. Starring Charlie Chaplin, Jackie Coogan and Edna Purviance. Written, Produced and Directed by Charlie Chaplin. Original music score Don Kinnier.

BONUS: Jitney Elopement (1915): Love-smitten Charlie is determined to rescue his sweetheart from an arranged marriage. Starring Charlie Chaplin and Edna Purviance. Directed by Charlie Chaplin.
