The Little Tramp is an escaped convict who is mistaken as a pastor in a small town church.
André Bazin named this western-style comedy one of the ten greatest films of all time in his ballot for Sight & Sound’s inaugural poll in 1952. Known for an enthralling scene that sees Chaplin pantomime the story of David and Goliath, The Pilgrim is one of the master’s most vital and hilarious gems.
