Two Line Reviews - #180

Movie: The Gold Rush (1925)
Plot: This the rags-to-riches story of an innocent guy who is on a gold hunt in an icy mountain range. He takes shelter with a giant gold hunter to escape from a blizzard and when his friend finds gold, Chaplin finds his love.

  • Charles Chaplin has the uncanny knack in earning the sympathy wave of the viewer with his inferior show of self-pity & the humour he associates that with is his speciality.
  • His memorable antics in this film are - Hiding to save himself from gun barrels, dance display with meat and fork, climax hut collapse scene - which seems to have inspired the legendary MMKR climax.
An outdoor ride with Chaplin; no less memorable than his other works.
