Trying to escape the police, a tramp runs into a circus. The chase entertains the bored audience so much that the circus owner decides to hire the tramp as a clown. But when he is supposed to make them laugh on command, he can't do it. However, he manages to fall for the beautiful acrobat, the owner's daughter, who loves tight-rope walker Rex. A classical slapstick from the last days of silent movies, still entertaining even almost a hundred years later.
With a toothbrush moustache, a cane and a suit a few sizes too small and trousers a few sizes too large, his Tramp became an iconic character of world cinema. Chaplin performed in music halls since childhood, and started in Hollywood in slapsticks produced by Keystone Studios, then went independent and made such famous films as The Kid (1921) and The Great Dictator (1940).
