The film " The Kid" ( a film of 6 reels) projects the rapport between a orphan child, deserted by his unmarried mother and a tramp. The child is rescued from dustbin by the tramp who fosters him. At the age of five the child is taught to break window-glass that his foster-father comes to mend. The film is called, " A picture with a smile-perhaps a tear." Who can forget the performance of Jackie Coogan as the child ??
