Synopsis

Double-bill of Charlie Chaplin films. In 'The Kid' (1921), Chaplin, as Charlie the tramp, discovers a baby in a dustbin and decides to give him a home. Five years later, the mother, now a successful opera star, regularly works with local charities in the hope of finding her boy. When a local doctor discovers the truth, the local authorities arrive to take the child from Charlie, but the ever-resourceful tramp won't be defeated that easily, and manages to steal him back. In 'A Dog's Life' (1918), Charlie is unemployed and living in a derelict lot. Finding a stray dog, Scraps, the pair visit a dancehall, managing to help out the recently fired singer Edna with a cash-stuffed wallet which Scraps has dug up.
