The Gold Rush was for Chaplin the "film he would like to be remembered for". It is one of his greatest comedies and also one of the hundred best American films, according to the American Film Institute. In this film, the "Tramp" goes fortune seeking in the Yukon and goes through difficult times, which he transforms, as always, into episodes of humour. Partly filmed in Sierra Nevada, it features some unforgettable sequences, such as the loaf dance and the meal of boiled shoe leather.

Cinema screenings for schools: The Gold Rush is a 1925 American film directed by Charlie Chaplin, who drew inspiration from photographs of the Klondike Gold Rush. In 1992, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
