The Great Scenes # 16: The Gold Rush (1925)

Directed by Charles Chaplin
 
Few film icons are more recognizable than Charlie Chaplin's the Little Tramp. The Gold Rush is one of the most famous films featuring the character. It contains many, many memorable scenes from the shoe eating scene to the fork and rolls dance. But my personal favorite scene is this one, a film which utilizes Chaplin's gift for physical comedy and at the same time adding a little bit of suspense.

That was pretty good, I got a nice laugh. Chaplin was good at what he did, and what he did was good.

sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have a modern day Chaplin? Comic/entertainer/humanitarian...on such a global scale as he did.
