Charlie Chaplin: The Gold Rush
Charlie Chaplin’s on-screen persona as the little tramp is possibly the most recognizable figure in movie history, and his writing and directing talents put him in a unique class which has never been rivaled. “The Gold Rush” (1925) is Chaplin at his very finest. His physical comedy powers are at their peak, while his ability to evoke more sensitive emotions is showcased here to its fullest. Partially filmed locally in the Sierra Nevada, this film features such memorable scenes as "eating the shoe" and "dancing dinner rolls." Georgia Hale plays the role of Georgia. It returns to the Crest Theatre with its original soundtrack.
