The Chaplin Collection
The Gold Rush, Charles Chaplin famously said, is "the picture I want to be remembered by." In 1998, leading movie critics and experts voted and remembered, choosing this 24-karat comedy as one of the American Film Institute's Top 100 American Films.
Chaplin's irrepressible Little Tramp seeks riches in the Yukon in this all-time classic here in Chaplin's later sound-era re-released version (Disc 1) and a restored original silent version (Disc 2). Leave it to the Tramp to turn hard times into hilarity as he savors a Thanksgiving feast of boiled shoe, slip-sides inside a house teetering on a cliff, choreographs a whimsical dance of dinner rolls and faces all manner of perils with pluck and fortitude. The Gold Rush is a cinematic wonder. Remember, and enjoy.
