The Gold Rush
A lone prospector seeking fame and fortune goes to Klondike to find his riches. Calm and content he goes about his business, until another prospector, just as famished as himself, begins mistaking him for a giant chicken. Shoe laces become spaghetti and bread rolls become ballet shoes, in a strange world where Chaplin, the alchemist, turns gold into poetry. "The Gold Rush" has been said to be the outstanding gem of all Chaplin’s pictures, receiving two Academy Award nominations upon its re-release in 1942. It has also been ranked the second greatest film in history.
