"As usual, there were variation in Chaplin’s playing, and in one scene appears to have contained the germ for the remarkable transformation that overtook “The Immigrant”.
When Campbell looms over poor Charlie with the bill he cannot pay, in one take he eats his beans and drinks his coffee in double quick time, and concludes by wiping his chin on the tablecloth. When he gets the bill, he folds it up and puts it on his head – a tiny Napoleonic hat – and adopts the famous pose, one hand inside his jacket.
In another take, he is confronted by the shock troop of waiters, and bursts into tears and has to be comforted by Edna.
And in another, he peers around the corner, terrified by the thought of Campbell’s return, put his hand to his mouth and blowing out his cheeks suggest that any moment he’s going to be sick.”

Excellent book highly recommend.
I have heard that these additional out takes as well as others not seen in “Unknown Chaplin” are with B.F.I.
