‘Gold Rush’ was the movie that Charlie Chaplin himself most wanted to be remembered for. In the film, Chaplin plays his character of the Tramp on a gold hunt in Alaska, and after several misadventures and dangers, he finally finds both love and money. The film contains a string of classic comedy scenes, but also contains a seriousness that raises current issues of weakness, alienation and love. Released in 1925, the film was a silent movie. In 1942, Chaplin recut the film into a new version with a voiceover and his own music. At the screening of “Gold Rush”, the music will be played live by the Nordic Chamber Orchestra under the direction of conductor George Morton.
