   Movie Summary: [Silent, Comedy]

    The Little Tramp battles Big Alaska. Only Charlie Chaplin could add the criminal depths to which people will sink in search of gold to the cannibalistic lengths they will go in search of food and come up with a comedy like The Gold Rush. As he said in My Autobiography, "...we must laugh in the face of our helplessness against the forces of nature or go insane." In The Gold Rush, the little fellow is battling great odds, including a blizzard, a bear, a killer, a rogue, a crazed gold miner, and even gravity. In contrast, however, to many of Chaplin's other films, The Little Tramp wins both the girl and the gold. This is the 1942 re-release narrated by Chaplin with intertitle cards deleted.
