Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
The film he said he wanted to be remembered by, Charles Chaplin's masterwork seamlessly combined humor and tragedy as his refined and compassionate little tramp struggled to strike gold in 1898 Alaska. Chaplin's gift for sight gags and intricate mime is most memorably displayed as he feasts on a boiled boot sole, twirling the laces like spaghetti and sucking on the nails as if they were a gourmet delicacy. Even as Chaplin makes comedy out of starvation and struggle, he reveals the dehumanizing effects of greed as it impinges on the capacity to love. Over a year in production and filmed partly on location near Lake Tahoe to recreate the look of photos of Yukon prospectors, The Gold Rush became Chaplin's first hit for his United Artists studio, reaffirming his superstar status after a directorial detour through drama in A Woman of Paris (1923). The reedited 1942 reissue included music and new narration by Chaplin. The Gold Rush has often been paired with Buster Keaton's The General (1927) as the two greatest silent comedies.

    One of the Greatest and Funniest Films Ever!!!!!!!!!!

    By far Chaplin's funniest film, in my opinion. Also his best. Everyone must see it. The scenes with the boot eating, the dance of the dinner rolls, and when the cabin falls off the cliff are some of the funniest things I have ever seen.

    To the current general moviegoing public at large, silent films

    To the current general moviegoing public at large, silent films are a thing of the past or even a form of art and entertainment that never existed at all. The Criterion Bluray/DVD editions of "The Gold Rush" make very clear that silent films were not only viable forms of entertainment but could often be great works of art in their own right. Charlie Chaplin's "The Gold Rush" most definitely meets the criteria for greatness with its ingenious combination of comedy, thrills and pathos. Here is a movie for everybody ; a movie that has everything to offer the viewer as entertainment. Chaplin's iconic "Little Tramp" reaches the summit of characterization in this epic tale of prospectors looking for gold in the  late 19th century Yukon. The film's classic scenes are almost too numerous to mention and the romantic longing of the tramp for the dance hall hostess (the lovely Georgia Brown) is sometimes forgotten amidst the often uproarious comedy, all of it directed with utmost brilliance by Charles Chaplin, one of the supreme artists of 20th Century Cinema, a man who ranks with best of them, including Griffith, Welles and Ford. The Criterion edition showcases the original silent version (in my opinion the true masterwork, not the 1942 re-edited sound version that Chaplin declared was his authentic director's cut, which included annoying sound narration and truncated much of the touching romantic aspects of the film.
