The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

1/10 In one scene, the Tramp looks at a statue of a nude woman in a shop window. This statue can be seen for a minute and a half.

In another scene, the camera focuses on a man accidentally pouring a drink down the Tramp's pants where they have come loose in the front. Later, he continues to stuff a napkin down the tramp's pants. Nothing sexual. It is intended for comedic purposes, but may be a little awkward.

There are many shirtless men in the scene while the Tramp is waiting to box. Nothing extreme.

Violence & Gore

Like most Chaplin films, all violence is mild and purely comic.

There are boxing scenes, and Chaplin is almost shot because he tries to escape from a house when being framed for robbery.



The tramp and his millionaire friend smoke cigars in one scene.

In one scene, the Tramp stumbles upon the rich millionaire while he is contemplating suicide by drowning. High jinks ensue afterward with the Tramp falling in the water, and the rich man falling into the water to save him.

Suggested MPAA rating: PG for comic violence and smoking.
