Not bad, but am I missing something?!
13 August 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

It's very odd. I just read through the two summaries and found they weren't exactly like the movie I saw. It is very possible there are multiple versions out there (that's true of MANY of Chaplin's shorts)--film distributors and theaters often chopped the films apart in those days. Perhaps those who saw it and wrote summaries saw versions with more or different inter-title cards, as there was really nothing about two rival gangs in the film I saw. Instead, a gang terrorizes a neighborhood and steals the money a man has saved. Later the man who was robbed sees the gang members in a dance hall. He and what appear to be his friends (not a rival gang) follow the gang and they all have a shootout--and the cops come to save the day. Now that I think about it, whose friends would just happen to have guns?
