The Gold Rush
Director: Charles Chaplin
Cast: Charles Chaplin, Georgia Hale, Mack Swain, Tom Murray, Henry Bergman, Malcolm Waite

Like many Americans the Tramp is bitten by the gold bug and he travels to Klondike to take part in the Gold Rush. Chaplin draws wonderfully warm comedy out of suffering in one of his best loved films. He eats his shoe and performs the roll dance in some of the most iconic scenes of the silent era.
