"The Gold Rush" (film) is Released

The Gold Rush is a 1925 silent film comedy written, produced, directed by, and starring Charlie Chaplin in his Little Tramp role.

The film also stars Georgia Hale, Mack Swain, Tom Murray, Henry Bergman, Malcolm Waite. Chaplin declared several times that this was the film that he most wanted to be remembered for.

One sequence was altered in the 1942 re-release so that instead of the Tramp finding a note from Georgia which he mistakenly believes is for him, he actually receives the note from her. Another major alteration is the ending, in which the now-wealthy Tramp originally gave Georgia a lingering kiss; the sound version ends before this scene.
