Synopsis

Double bill starring the legendary silent comedy actor Charlie Chaplin. In 'Tillie's Punctured Romance' (1914), Chaplin takes the lead as Tillie's errant and philandering boyfriend, who runs off with local girl, Mabel, leaving Tillie penniless and waitressing on tables. When Tillie inherits three million pounds, Chaplin swiftly returns with marriage in mind. In 'Knock Out' (1914), two down-and-outs attempt to turn their luck around by staging a fake boxing competition to make money. They get someone to pretend to be champion boxer Cyclone Flynn, but unfortunately the real Cyclone Flynn turns up and challenges the imposter to a fight. Things quickly get out of hand, resulting in a rooftop chase involving the Keystone Cops.
