Foezel, a dim-witted police officer, is persuaded to loan his trousers to an actor who is playing a cop in a movie.


A Moving Picture Company is about to take a scene but find they are short a pair of policeman's trousers. A cop comes along and after much persuasion is induced to loan his. To escape embarrassment he jumps into an empty barrel which an unkind person starts on a long roll. Just as he has told his superior officer a fine tale of heroism the leading lady of the movies spoils the whole thing by bringing back his trousers. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
