10 | Possibly Chaplin's best film, certainly one of the greatest comedies of all time!
To see Charlie Chaplin's The Gold Rush is to know enjoyment. One cannot help but enjoy a film as well-done as this! ...
The film entered the public domain in 1953 because the claimants neglected to renew its copyright registration.
The second cabin scene where they teeter over the edge of a cliff is supposed to be taking place in the daytime. But gaps in the planks of wood making up the cabin reveal a dark background indicating the film was shot indoors on a stage. When the cabin is tilting back and forth a stage light is occasionally visible through a gap in the upper right side of the cabin wall.
