In the scene where Charles Reisner's "Bully" is trying to beat up Charles Chaplin's "Tramp," it is obvious that the Bully's upper body has been heavily padded to make him look far bigger and more threatening than he really is, physically.
After the Tramp chases on rooftop the two welfare workers who have captured and tormented John, the scene ends with the Tramp and one of the workers fighting on the back of the workers' pickup truck. After kicking the second welfare man off the back of the pickup, the Tramp makes a 'nonsensical' wave-good-bye as he and John ride off to momentary safety. In reality Chaplin (also the director) is waving 'CUT' to cameraman Rollie Totheroh.
