The Gold Rush (1925)


The Gold Rush is a 1925 silent comedy, written, directed, and starring Charlie Chaplin. The Tramp is a Lone Prospector, who falls in love with a dance hall girl (Georgia Hale). From eating his own shoe for the Thanksgiving meal, to the famous dance of the bread rolls, and many other strokes of genius I wish not to spoil for the first time watcher... If there was one word to describe this film, it would be "sublime".

  1. I learned that Charlie got the roll bit from Fatty Arbuckle, who used it an an earlier film. I think it was "The Butcher Boy." So funny! Charlie made it classic, as he did everything :)
