Ginsberg & Kelly/Kelly & Ginsberg
25 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An absolutely heart-warming tale about a young lad, Timmy Kelly, masterfully played by child star Jackie Coogan, who runs away from an orphanage after the shelter suffers major damage from a fire, The Rag Man,(Metro-Goldwyn, 1925), directed by Edward Cline,is truly a classic.

Young Timmy befriends a junk dealer, Max Ginsberg, poignantly played by Max Davidson. The two embark on a comical journey becoming close friends whereby each depends on the other. Young Timmy proves his loyalty and devotion to the man who took a chance on him whose sole companion to this point was an old Derby winning horse named Dynamite. Dynamite's oats bowl is a key element to this story too. You must watch to see what I mean.

The musical score was masterfully written by the late Linda Martinez.

This is a must-see film and I would be hard-pressed to believe anyone not enjoying this delightful film which has a running time of approximately 75 minutes. The film had a sequel later in 1925, titled, Old Clothes. The sequel is of particular interest because it features Joan Crawford in one of her earliest roles.

I sincerely hope these two wonderful films become available on DVD or VHS soon.
