1001 Movies Club - Gold Rush, The (1925)
#28. The Gold Rush (1925)
Why It's In The Book: "The Gold Rush affirmed Charles Chaplin's belief that tragedy and comedy are never far apart... The film was in every respect the most elaborate undertaking of Chaplin's career...Today, The Gold Rush appears as one of Chaplin's most perfectly accomplished films. Though his affections for his own work changed over time, to the end of his life he would frequently declare that this film was the one by which he would most wish to be remembered." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Michaël Parent - 10/10
"For a film made in the 1920s it was a real tour-de-force."
Shubhajit Lahiri - 10/10
"Gold Rush was the movie that Charlie Chaplin wanted to be remembered by."
TSorensen - 10/10
"In Gold Rush, Chaplin’s tramp is in Klondike prospecting for gold, a task he is hopelessly unsuited for. He is, as usual, pitted against formidable odds but carries on unfazed, not with Keaton’s deadpan, but with Chaplin’s tragic optimism."
Whitney - 10/10
"After I watched the 1945 dubbed version yesterday (laughing out loud in a room all by myself), I immediately started the film over and watched all of my favorite parts again."
Adolytsi - 9/10
"The Gold Rush is a standout example of what made Chaplin so great."
Darwin - 9/10
"What's black and white and waddles on the snow? Why, it's Charlie Chaplin in The Gold Rush. He's first seen ambling on a snowy mountain, barely aware of a bear behind him. Hehe. But can you really blame the bear? That Chaplin chap's a treat."
Jeff Coté - 9/10
"I knew beforehand that I would end up respecting The Gold Rush. Never did I think I would be so entertained, as well. It is truly a testament to Chaplin's talent and comedic prowess that even after 85+ years since the release of this film, it is still able to elicit laughs from viewers."
Movie Guy Steve - 9/10
"There are some movies that you watch because they are good for you. Others you watch because they are fun and entertaining. Still others get watched because they are classics, and viewing them is necessary to understand where film came from and where it is still going. The Gold Rush is all three of these things and more."
Squish - 9/10
"Three recognizably classic scenes without even having seen it: The eating of the cooked boot, the dancing with bread rolls and the cabin teetering off a cliff. The style of this film is memorable, comedic and truly original. Anyone would be enriched by this. What are you waiting for?"
This Guy Over Here - 9/10
"This is a highly influential and truly hilarious film that has unrivaled awe-inspiring moments of action comedy and heartwarming moments of tenderness."
alfindeol - 8/10
"Hitler and a man in a bear suit have wacky adventures."
Fey - 8/10
"Overall, The Gold Rush is a must see film and one that is very much worth your time. It is one of those things that is obligatory but ultimately incredibly rewarding."
Johnlgilpatrick - 8/10
"I would’ve liked seeing The Gold Rush in its original, silent form, but I still loved the re-release. Its brilliant blend of enduring comedy and folksy charm makes it a must-see."
Nicolas Krizan - 8/10
"who would've thought starvation could be so funny."
KimWilson - 7/10
"This film is classic Chaplin: incredible physical comedy paired with hilarious sequences. One of the best Little Tramp films of all time—it's difficult to pick between this and Modern Times. A must see for a true film lover."
Siochembio - 7/10
"I actively wanted to punch Georgia in the face."
Overall Rating: 8.8/10
