"A Thief Catcher"
"Charlie Chaplin had a small part at the end of the film as a  “Keystone Cop”. the significance of this lies in the fact that Charlie had mentioned during his life that he had played a Keystone Cop but there was no record of it or film to verify this, some probably thought that it was just a a bad memory on his part.

Film historian Paul E. Gierucki discovered a 16mm print of this previously “lost” film in 2010, at a garage sale I believe. In a surprise, it contained Charles Chaplin in a bit part as a Keystone Cop. 
I am so glad to see that Charlie was vindicated. He had an extraordinary memory.
