Brawny Howard Mitchell doubled as director and title character in the Thanhouser production The Traffic Cop. Mitchell plays Officer Casey, the boyfriend of the pretty ward (Gladys Hulette) of a pompous bank president (Ernest Howard). For four full reels, the banker disapproves of the romance between the cop and the girl. But in the fifth reel he changes his mind when Casey saves him from financial ruin. Produced with the full cooperation of New York's Commissioner of Police, The Traffic Cop is festooned with stock shots of "real" cops going about their daily maneuvers.
