Chaplin was looking for a leading lady for “A Night Out” (1915) when one of his associates noticed Purviance at a Tate’s Café in San Francisco and thought she should be cast in the role. Chaplin arranged a meeting with her and although he was concerned that she might be too serious for comedic roles, she won the job. Purviance went on to appear in 33 of Chaplin’s productions, including “The Tramp” (1915), “The Immigrant” (1917), “Easy Street” (1917), “The Idle Class” (1921)
