Wow, does this film lose its way!, 14 February 2011
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

This is one of the extras included on the bonus disk for Chaplin's "The Kid". It's from a series of films that are included with all the full-length Warner Brothers releases of Chaplin's full-length films.

The first fifteen minutes are quite good, as it gives extensive background for the film as well as Chaplin's work ethic. Oddly, though, then the film very abruptly switches to the present and the film makers interview an Iranian director and he watches and discusses "The Kid" and compares it to one of his films. Frankly, this all seemed quite irrelevant, as the man was not an apparent expert on Chaplin and someone like Leonard Maltin or some other film historian would have made a lot more sense. I do not mean to be disrespectful, but I really didn't care about this director's observations or any supposed Iranian connection (which, there was none).

I would give the first 15 minutes a 9 and the last portion of the film a 1...for an overall score of 4. Too bad--it's just that the film lost its way and could have been so much better.Wow,
