"Mixes slapstick and sentiment in a winning combination."
-Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide

One heaves rocks through windows. The other happens by in the nick of time to offer his services as an expert window repairman. It's a system that works. So does everything else about this beloved Chaplin classic whose blend of laughs and pathos changed the notion of what a screen comedy could be.

For the first time as a filmmaker, Chaplin stepped into feature-length storytelling with this tale of the down-but-never-out Tramp (Chaplin) and the adorable ragamuffin (6-year-old Jackie Coogan) who, rescued as a foundling and raised in the School of Hard Knocks by the Tramp, is his inseparable sidekick.

About the restoration of THE GOLD RUSH

From Janus Films:

Despite its reputation as one of the great masterpieces of silent cinema, The Gold Rush has long been unavailable in its original form, following Chaplin's 1942 "sound version" and his dictate that the original only be screened with live orchestral accompaniment. Now, in collaboration with the Cineteca Bologna and the Chaplin Estate, Janus Films is proud to present a 35mm restoration of the film, complete with a newly recorded orchestral score. Moving, hilarious, and full of invention, The Gold Rush has never looked - or sounded - better.

ABOUT THE RESTORATION: Working in 2K from Kevin Brownlow and David Gill's original 1993 restoration of The Gold Rush, Criterion's technical department further improved the image, removing thousands of instances of dirt, scratches, and debris. Following over 500 hours of restoration work, the film was outputted back to 35mm and married to a new 5.1 Dolby Digital recording of Chaplin's score, reconstructed and conducted by Timothy Brock.
