a great accompaniment to the DVD set
28 April 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The DVD set Warner Brothers released for THE GOLD RUSH was fantastic--giving both the original release, the re-release (including narration by Chaplin) and this documentary about the making of the film. It gives a lot of amazing inside information and greatly enhances the film--unlike the "extras" in most DVDs (that often seemed more like a tacked-on element at best).

In particular, I liked how it discussed the creation of the huge sets as well as the extreme difficulties they faced filming the on-site shots in the Sierra Nevadas.

This movie is a must for film buffs and lovers of the work of Chaplin. Watch the movie then be sure to watch this featurette--it helps bring the movie alive. Sadly, I have seen a few other of the "Chaplin Today" featurettes and they are very poor--especially for "The Circus" and "The Kid".
