This page lists just some of the previous films that the RMA Film Club have shown.
Tuesday 14 May – The Kid (U) & Associated Shorts
The opening title reads: “A comedy with a smile–and perhaps a tear”. This 1921 Black and White Silent classic is not only the first Feature Film starring Charlie Chaplin, it is also the first appearance of child star Jackie Coogan. In this later print the original images are combined with a unique recording of the full orchestral Chaplin Score conducted by the artist himself.
“It is hard to find such delightful and adorable movies these days as “The Kid”. It is a silent movie but so rich, winning and beautiful that you don´t need words. Chaplin and 6-year old Coogan are possibly the most charming pair I have ever seen in my life.”
As our Festival Special this screening will be proceeded by some relevant shorts showing “Children in Action” on the Big Screen.
