Gold Rush, The

609. THE GOLD RUSH (1925-usa). With charlie chaplin, Georgia hale, Mack SWAIN. Written and directed by Charlie Chaplin, The little tramp on the loose during the Klondike goldrush Of ’98. One Of Chaplin’s best remembered features, with many classic scenes: ‘The dance Of the rolls,” the preparation Of the “shoe” dinner, waiting for the dance hall girl who never comes, the cabin perched on the very edge Of the cliff, many more. In the dead Of winter in Dawson, The Yukon Territory, little Charlie bravely sets out to strike pay dirt. One Of the funniest silent comedies ever made, a yardstick by which others are still judged. “Silent” film with music score, correct projection speed. 105 minutes. Chaplin
