Synopsis

A small child is infuriating the locals by maliciously throwing rocks through their windows. However, just in the nick of time, a charismatic man always seems to show up offering his glass replacement service. This is the kind of swindling that the Little Tramp and his trusty sidekick, the Kid, survive on. In his feature film directing debut, Charlie Chaplin changed the face of cinematic comedy by not only delivering chortles by the bucket load but also entwining them with pathos, creating a classic, heartwarming story that will have tears of laughter and affection meeting on the same cheeks.
