Legendary Charlie Chaplin film 'The Kid' to be re-released to mark its centenary
The distributor said the re-release will be a remastered digital version that has not been revealed before.
This silent film was Chaplin’s first full-length film as a director and gained huge success, becoming the highest-grossing film in 1921.
The film revolves around a tramp, played by Chaplin, who reluctantly rescues a baby who has been abandoned by his unwed mother, played by Edna Purviance, and raises him for several years. When the mother attempts to retrieve her child, the tramp and the child embark on a desperate attempt to escape.
The film premiered in Korea 32 years ago in 1989, and there was a special screening of it in 2015.
