To view this film today..i am speakin gof the 1925 version..in comparison to the inferior 1942 rerelease and edited/rerelease is to see mr chaplin at the height of his creative powers. A great film and what some critics dislike in his earlier films..the pathos..the lower class origins..politicizing of the hero..these elements are not so much an issue romance..the hunt for TREASURE..and what that treasure is and entails redeems this work..the original which premiered in L.A. became one of the highest grossing silent films, 7M plus..a big success and the premier saw many studio and stars of 1925..few of these would make the transition to sound films..almost none..charlie managed to hang on and the talking charlie was quite different..and the silent film is almost a different medium in all ways.the acting, and so on..here is one of the great silent films!!
The tramp or little man..the insignificiant..was a popular literary figure in london, not popular with readers outsid eof england, but the Dickens character and other practitioners of this character, the uneducated bumpkin, charlie gives an interpretation of a type of this character whoose warmth humor and value has some source some way of moralizing this character..and we must peep through the drama to find it inthe Gold Rush. Like todays lottery ticket..som eplaces you could win hundreds of millions, and they are a part of modern culture the search for unlimited wealth to have it all and purchase and surround ourselves with all the trappings of success..here is the low class hero..on aa search for gold. He battles with big Jim...that too is a literary type..and all the obstacles..to get hearts desire the heart of the film is the romantic life and the woman featured throughout the film..women through all walks of life..

It recorded an important part of human history in Chaplin's way, funny, humane, and passionate. I think this should be ranked as top 10 greatest comedy film of all time.

The DVD I was sent was a bootleg-style version named "The Gold RUCH".

It was also NOT THE FAMOUS SILENT MOVIE - this is a later version in which a man's voice-over narrates and describes the action in the scenes.

These details were not made clear in the description, or before payment.

The description did say this DVD wouldn't arrive in the original case, so I wasn't expecting that, and that was just fine.

How could I dare review the funniest man that ever lived? Gold Rush is classic that can never be repeated. Tremendous joy! The CD works fine. Thanks!

I agree with one of the reviews above. Go right to the second disc and see the film as it originally appeared. Fantastic! (The first disc with the narration is very nice, but the narration is totally unnecessary). The film still holds up beautifully and the prints of this whole collection are amazing. Particulary if you've never seen this film, the best one to watch is the second disc original release. You won't be sorry!!!

Gold Rush is one of Charlie Chaplin's legendary films about the Tramp who seeks fortune and a better life in Klondike, Alaska, during the gold rush. In his quest for fortune he encounters several questionable characters which often lead to comic situations. Underneath the comedy there is a serious undertone of struggle for happiness and prosperity where the Tramp becomes easy prey as he helps those in need. However, through his kindness he ends up being hurt in several ways. Throughout the film, Chaplin conveys his messages with comedy that makes it easier to look at the hardships the Tramp encounters, and through this comedy he teaches the audience valuable morals. Overall, Gold Rush offers a brilliant cinematic experience that offers something for everybody.

Format: DVD
With two DVDs and a high budget at their disposal, the producers of this DVD should have been able to give us the film as it was originally intended to be seen. But no -- in this set, you get two versions, neither of which even came close to satisfying my memory of this film, watching a crappy TV version which nevertheless had the original score intact and no narration.
The two versions here are Chaplin's own retroactive tampering with his film, adding oodles of unnecessary narration which never tells us anything the images don't. It's strange that Chaplin himself didn't always realize that his was a highly theatrical, demonstrative comic technique of which he is a master, but which holds no element of naturalism whatsoever. Whenever he departed from the silent-film milieu, he never went too far (with the sole exception of Monsieur Verdoux). Chaplin's own dialogue technique is ill suited to film, being too magnanimous and self-conscious; when he employs it in a strange silent-film way (as in the singing sequence of Modern Times, or the "people-talking-gibberish" gag he uses in his later films) he succeeds grandly. When he tries to use sound naturalistically as in the narration here, The Great Dictator and Limelight, he tends to fumble.
Having been shell-shocked by the meddled-with version, I had hopes that the second version on Disc 2, billed as "the original 1925 silent version", would be better. Only marginally: Somehow they felt the need to replace all the titles (yes, the titles matter -- just look at Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo) and, more grievously, redo the score. And this new recording is even more problematic than the overly clean re-recorded orchestral score to the recent DVD re-release of Metropolis.
