In the 1925 version Georgia writes an apologetic love letter to her boyfriend, and he gives it to Charles Chaplin as a cruel prank. The 1942 re-cut version changed this so that Georgia writes the note for Chaplin, making their Last Minute Hookup less unexpected. See more »
"The Gold Rush" is perhaps one of the best silent movies I have ever seen.Although it takes a bit to get used to silent movie language you'll be rewarded with a marvelous,funny and poignant movie.Some of the scenes are hilarious and some really touches your heartstrings. Chaplin as performer gives one of his best performances in this movie. There are plenty of great scenes:Chaplin and Mack Swain in the cabin,crazy with hunger and cabin fever,the touching New Year's Eve party and finally the hilarious finale with the cabin out on the edge of a cliff.The later version which was released with added narration and music wasn't as good as the original,but easier for modern audiences to watch.
