Chief accountant Porfiry Petrovich, who had a good time at the jubilee of his colleague, cashier Ivan Vodnev, climbs into the hut of the regulator and violates traffic on one of the streets of Leningrad. However, the guard Vasili Shaneshkin mistakenly delivers to the police station a non-escaped offender, but quite a decent cashier. To all other things, Vodnev, offended by the police, turns out to be the father of the bride of Shanishkin's Katya. Vasily admits his guilt, but, not daring to explain himself, leaves an angry Ivan Zakharovich with bad thoughts about the Soviet militia. Fortunately, the young sergeant will soon have the opportunity to prove to others the responsibility and integrity of the militia. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

Story of a good cop.
10 September 2012 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

This is a true Soviet Classic comedy of 50's. Touchy story of young policeman who fights for love and against stereotypes about his profession in society.

Returning home drunk chief accountant Smirnov (Yakov Rodos) climbs into the booth traffic controller and violates the traffic on the streets of Leningrad. But guard Vasily Shaneshkin (Leonid Kharitonov) gives the police department is not the offender, but a very respectable citizen Vodnev (Georgi Chernovolenko) - cashier of construction department, which, among other things, is the father of the Vasily's bride Catherine (Dzhemma Osmolovskaya). Shaneshkin admits his guilt, but not daring to apologize, leaving Vodnev angry alone with bad thoughts about the Soviet police. Fortunately, the young sergeant soon have the opportunity to defend cashier against attack and thus improve relations with father of future wife.

In the episodes you can see a young Evgeni Leonov as lazy and irresponsible policeman (but funny as always). Kharitonov (well known in 50's for his Ivan Browkin role) play again image of kind, modest, charming and "slightly bad egg.". Dzhemma Osmolovskaya became his wife in real life after this movie. Maybe that explain why this movie is so good... It's not "funny as hell", it a nice one and easy to watch.
