Chaplin's first full-length feature, The Kid, opens with: "A comedy with a smile - and perhaps a tear." The Tramp discovers a little orphan and brings him up but is left desolate when the orphanage reclaims him. Will they reunite?

In The Idle Class, The Tramp sneaks into an upper class golf resort where he meets a rich woman who is having an argument with her drunken husband. Complications arise when she mistakes The Tramp for her husband (Chaplin plays both characters).
