One of the funniest scenes in the film, Big Jim finally gets out of the teetering cabin, discovers his gold, expressing his joy, he forgets the tramp is still in there, you can see the tramp, still in the cabin, about to fall into the abyss, in a panic yelling “HEY, HEY”!! 

If you notice Charlie Chaplin very seldom mouthed words, the way he communicated was purely pantomime.

Edna Purviance

Kittyinva: 1910’s
Edna Purviance in 1916

Charlie Chaplin’s beautiful leading lady for 8 years 1915-1923.
She helped his tramp character evolve, in his Keystone films he was crude, vulgar and skirt chasing, with Edna by his side in later shorts and films, he became more caring, romantic, 3 dimensional, though if pushed he could scrap with the best of them.
I think in his own way Charlie realized Edna was an integral part of his early success

Charlie at the age of 77, during production of “A Countess from Hong Kong”- 

 Of Charlie’s eyes, comedian Stan Laurel (who was in the Karno Troupe with Charlie - when they toured America in 1910 were room mates)  said, “he had those eyes that absolutely forced you to look at them. They can dominate anyone they look at. That’s part of the secret of his great success—eyes that make you believe in him in whatever he does.”

City Lights (1931)

The tramp has had enough of this snobby butler, the butler played by Allan Garcia was also the Ring Master in “The Circus” and the factory boss in “Modern Times”
