The Gold Rush from Charlie Chaplin
Philharmonie Salzburg conducted by Elisabeth Fuchs - Große Universitätsaula
Program Info: Charles Chaplin - The Gold Rush
The 1925 silent film comedy "The Gold Rush" is Charlie Chaplin's most celebrated film. Chaplin uses the gold miners' happiness knighthood, which has been exaggerated in the film, as a metaphor for a world based only on material values, but in which, despite all the clumsiness, he ultimately finds his personal happiness in the form of love. The strip was republished several times. Chaplin released it in a sound film version in 1942 and was nominated for an Oscar.
