Synopsis

When a baby is accidentally stolen along with a car, the thieves abandon him and he ends up in the care of the kindly Tramp (played by Charlie Chaplin, who also wrote and directed the film). The Tramp looks after him until the age of five and together, the pair work a series of comical scams. According to Chaplin, this silent movie's aim was to leave the audience with "a smile, and perhaps a tear" - with little Jackie Coogan giving one of the great child acting performances as the kid.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
