Twenty years before The Artist made silent film briefly in vogue, Sidewalk Stories showed how telling a story with no dialogue or sound can leave the biggest impact. 

A young artist living in New York, on the fringes of the financial district and its rushing crowds, tries to make a living sketching passers-by on the street. He survives on his meager means and has found refuge in an abandoned building. One night, on the corner of a back alley, he finds a little girl whose father has just been murdered. While struggling to take care of her, he meets a young rich woman who immediately falls in love with this awkward couple.
