The Tramp cares for an abandoned child, but events put that relationship in jeopardy.
This was Charles Chaplin's first feature film.
Put the quarter in the gas mater.
After the Tramp chases on rooftop the two welfare workers who have captured and tormented John, the scene ends with the Tramp and one of the workers fighting on the back of the workers' pickup truck. After kicking the second welfare man off the back of the pickup, the Tramp makes a 'nonsensical' wave-good-bye as he and John ride off to momentary safety. In reality Chaplin (also the director) is waving 'CUT' to cameraman Rollie Totheroh.
A new version was reissued in 1971 with a new music score composed by Charles Chaplin, who also re-edited the film in order to omit a few scenes featuring the kid's mother.
