If you are a Chaplin fan already, this is a classic Chaplin movie. It will keep you laughing out loud and rolling in the isles. If you aren't familiar with Chaplin, this movie has something for everyone; physical humor, romance, good vs. evil. You can't go wrong.

Full of comedy and classic scenes like the eating of the shoe, the tipping cabin and the dancing dinner rolls. It is a Classic I would give it 6 stars if possible. A must see!

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.

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!!!

This movie is beautiful! The dvd is great! I read other reviews and they do not talk about the dvds that much (thank you for those who have) but the dvd is outstanding! Breathtaking transfer i have two versions of this movie this one and the ... version from koch and this is simply beautiful. almost made me cry! the transfer well i have no speaker system but on HEADPHONES it was wicked good! and the extras well there is alot on there and it took me a weekend to watch all of them and i am an extra freak! One bad note though: The 1940's version ah how do i put it... is not that good aside from the original score it was worthless to me. and the "good" version is on the 2nd disc! what! it would have got a better transfer on the first disc oh well! sad that some people might overlook it! Well if u r wondering y i cry it is in the scene well..you'l have to see the movie yourself! sorry i did not talk about the movie much! one word describes it:brilliant. and beautiful. the two b's well see ya! can't wait for city lights! p.s. you know what i mean...

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.

Charlie Chaplin's "The Gold Rush" is a mixed bag. The film itself is uneven as it is entertaining for certain stretches and just adequate in others. Yet the general public as a whole still owe it a measure of thanks for its contribution of the wonderful "dancing bread rolls" sequence to cinema lore. Playing with one's food was never so visually amusing.
The Tramp (Chaplin) tries his luck at prospecting for gold but finds himself being harassed by the nasty weather, a criminal on the loose named Black Larson (Tom Murray), and a desperate and hungry man named Big Jim McKay (Mack Swain). Failing to strike it rich despite his best efforts, The Tramp treks to a nearby village to start over. A village woman named Georgia (Georgia Hale) catches his eye and soon The Tramp is using all the resources at his disposal to prepare a memorable New Year's Eve dinner for her.
In the pantheon of Chaplin works, "The Gold Rush" ranks behind "City Lights" (1931), and "The Great Dictator" (1940), and is generally on par with "Modern Times" (1936). In other words, this film is a serviceable Chaplin vehicle but nothing more than that. The silent comedian is his usual charming self from the moment he first appears and he marvelously displays that impeccable comic timing that made him so great at physical comedy in every routine he finds himself in. But "The Gold Rush" flounders because the material he is working with this time around is not that strong. The pathos and social relevance that define Chaplin's better efforts are in shorter supply here and the film suffers for it.
