The first feature-length comedy by Charlie Chaplin (Modern Times)-which charts a hapless prospector's search for fortune in the Klondike and his discovery of romance (with the beautiful Georgia Hale)-forever cemented the iconic status of Chaplin and his Little Tramp character. Shot partly on location in the Sierra Nevadas and featuring such timeless gags as Chaplin's dance of the dinner rolls and meal of boiled shoe leather, The Gold Rush is an indelible work of nonstop hilarity. This special edition features both Chaplin's definitive 1942 version, for which the directoradded new music and narration, and a new restoration of the original silent 1925 film.

      Comments about this product:

      I had seen "The Goldrush" once on TCM and knew I would have to have it for my collection. I don't go to many newer movies. I love the old classics and this has to be one.
