The Tramp adopts an abandoned illegitimate child as his own. Memorable and engrossing six-reel silent comedy/drama, now accompanied by a score Chaplin himself conducted in 1971. Here the six-year old Jackie Coogan almost steals the entire show from Chaplin. Entered 2011 into the National Film Registry.
