Made in 1922, The Pilgrim is a gentle satire on small-town life and religion, with Chaplin as an escaped convict mistaken for the new pastor of a rural community. When the film first came out it suffered a good deal from censorship in some more puritanical states and cities of the United States. Today we have no such problems with this charming comedy and its sharp but good-hearted fun at the expense of the small hypocrisies of life.
The Tramp has escaped from prison. He disguises to escape police and is mistakenly welcomed as a pastor in a small town church.
