THE GOLD RUSH MOVIE POSTERTHE GOLD RUSH, 1925
Movie Reviews

Directed by Charlie Chaplin
Starring: Charles Chaplin, Georgia Hale, Mack Swain, Tom Murray, Henry Bergman, Malcolm Waite
Review by Jason Day

SYNOPSIS:

A little tramp (Chaplin) heads out to the Klondike during the gold rush and runs into a notorious crook (Murray) and a kind-hearted, but hungry, prospector (Swain) who has just found a mountain of gold. Trouble is, he loses his memory and can’t find it! Along the way, the tramp finds love with a music hall dancer (Hale) who wants nothing more than an honest, decent guy.

REVIEW:

Chaplin has always been a bit of a ‘take him or leave him’ kind of cinema giant. Take his wonderfully inventive comic ballet moments, for instance and leave (in fact, completely erase from the memory) his rather unsubtle shifts between high comedy and low, lachrymose, drama.
