Synopsis

The Gold Rush saw the highly anticipated return of the Little Tramp to the silver screen as he seeks his fortune in the hidden gold mines of Klondike. This logical ambition quickly becomes surreal, however, when another prospector, just as famished as he, begins mistaking the Little Tramp for a giant chicken. In this world where shoelaces become spaghetti and bread rolls become ballet shoes, the alchemist that is Charlie Chaplin turns gold into visual poetry...
