58. The Gold Rush

What it's about
A man goes looking for gold.

What I thought
I liked the music and the Tramp was funny.

What Mum thought
Mum had seen this one before. "Iconic scenes, particularly the 'dancing rolls', and I can see why this film makes the list. A blend of comedy, romance and drama and, of course, Chaplin in his most famous role. From a personal point of view, I've never been a big Chaplin fan despite his influence, although I did enjoy City Lights. Gold Rush was okay."

What Dad thought
First time for Dad. "Sorry to say I just couldn't stomach another silent movie. Didn't appreciate it."
