Key art for The Gold Rush

Charles Chaplin is one of history's greatest cinema actors, writers and directors. For over fifty years Charlie Chaplin charmed audiences and critics with his timeless wit and candid take on the state of humanity in masterpieces such as The Great Dictator, Modern Times, The Gold Rush and more. Chaplin and his contribution to cinema have passed the test of time, he remains an adored icon even in the 21st century. Transmission Films and Paramount Home Entertainment are proud to present the definitive, fully-restored Chaplin collection.

Set in Alaska, The Gold Rush follows the Tramp in his search of riches. Surviving encounters with a wanted criminal, a bear, a starving prospector and a great deal of snow, he arrives in a gold rush town and falls hopelessly in love with the star of the dance hall. Despite much ridicule from the dance hall regulars, he ends up a gold millionaire and leaves them all behind, headed for love and happiness.

Nominated for two Academy Awards, Chaplin's 1925 feature-length comedy The Gold Rush is one of his finest films and, reportedly, the one for which Chaplin wanted to be most remembered. This version features the 1942 revised musical score which was nominated for an Oscar - 18 years after the film was originally shot.
