A light and funny short silent where Chaplin the tramp gets a job as a policeman and must put order in the London slums.

Classic Charlie Chaplin silent movie. Charlie is a tramp who falls in love with the church organist. He gets a job as a policeman in the South London slums, where gangs beat up policemen. Charlie becomes the hero.
