The Twin Geeks 125: The Gold Rush (1925)

There are few things in the history of cinema more iconic than Chaplin’s Little Tramp and his many adventures. His exploits in the snowy landscape of The Gold Rush (1925) are perhaps the most recognizable of all, from the innovative miniature trickery to the famous rolls dance which has permeated pop culture ever since. The purest rendition of Chaplin’s indelible persona is perhaps also his most transformative, with two distinct versions to choose from which author varying perspectives on the director’s authorial voice over the film. Similar subjects are explored as we take a look at Quinten Tarantino’s recent novelization of his hit film Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood (2019) and a magical trip back to the theaters for the first time since their year-long reprieve. All of this and more from your independent resource on classic and contemporary cinema.
