Sidewalk Stories is a 1989 American low-budget, nearly silent movie directed by and starring Charles Lane. The film was shot in black and white and tells the story of a young African American man raising a small child after her father is murdered. For traditional silent film fans this production certainly harkens back and is an homage to Charlie Chaplin's 1921 feature The Kid. The film was televised by PBS as well as saw limited exposure on VHS and cable television in the 1990s, but is currently out of print.[1]
