The Gold Rush (1925)

A lone prospector ventures into Alaska looking for gold. He gets mixed up with some burly characters and falls in love with the beautiful Georgia. He tries to win her heart with his singular charm.

The 1942 musical score is superior to the 1925 versions but Chaplin's additional step by step narration spoils the 1942 version. He should also have kept the original ending, even if he disliked it for personal reasons.

I love the dance with the rolls on the forks. Humor truly transcends time.

My second film from the Sikent era, and I have to say - The General is way better, and it's only a year younger.
