Easy Street (1917)

US 19m, B&W, Silent
Director: Charlie Chaplin; Cast: Charlie Chaplin, Edna Purviance, Eric Campbell, Albert Austin, Lloyd Bacon

As one of his best comedic shorts, Chaplin somehow finds humor in a story that is based in the poverty of skid row and among criminals and drug use. For once on the right side of the law, the Tramp becomes a policeman who is sent to patrol one of the most dangerous streets in the city. Meeting Eric Campbell’s menacing character, the main villain of Easy Street, Chaplin finds a way for the Tramp to defeat his giant nemesis and win the heart of a mission worker who had once been kind to him (Klaus Ming April 2017).
