Added DiffLines:

* CongruentMemory: The millionaire regards Charlie as his best buddy when drunk, but as a vagrant stranger when sober.


Added DiffLines:

* RescueReversal: The drunk and depressed eccentric millionaire is clumsily attempting to take his own life at the harbor. He has tied one end of a rope to a large stone and put the noose around his neck. The Tramp comes down the steps and valiantly intervenes to prevent the man's determined suicide, but the loop in the rope falls around his neck and pulls him into the river instead. The Tramp almost drowns and he is the one who must be saved.


Added DiffLines:

* SentimentalDrunk: The Millionaire is exceedingly friendly and generous when drunk, but tight fisted and mean when sober. The fact that he also tended to black out and not remember what had happened when he was drunk adds to the confusion.


Added DiffLines:

* TearfulSmile: The Tramp at the end.


Added DiffLines:

* WeightedGloves: Subverted during the boxing scene. In the locker room Charlie finds a horseshoe which he fiddles with but eventually dismisses and goes to fight without.

* RomanceOnTheSet: Averted--and notable because, before Chaplin's marriage to Oona O'Neill in 1943, Virginia Cherill was practically the only one of his female costars since 1915 that he didn't have a relationship with. Chaplin actually fired Cherill at one point and tried to replace her with his ''Film/TheGoldRush'' costar Georgia Hale, but he was too far along in production to start over.
