    Description

    The Gold Rush (United Artists, R-1942). Title Card and lobby Cards (6) (11" X 14"). One of Charlie Chaplin's most memorable features, the Little Tramp trudges off to the Klondike in search of gold in this classic film. The longest and most elaborate of Chaplin's comedies, including some of his most memorable sequences, like the dancing dinner rolls, and the scene in which Chaplin and Big Jim (Mack Swain) share a boot for dinner. When the film was re-released in 1942, Chaplin made a number of changes to the picture, including the addition of a score and narration, and the editing of certain scenes, including a substantial change to the ending. In the original release, the Little Tramp finally gets the girl, and all ends well. Chaplin's audience at the time felt that this was seriously out of character, so in the re-release, Chaplin recut the scene so that the Tramp ends up, as ever, alone. Offered here are lobby cards from the re-release of this classic comedy. The title card shows pinholes in the corners, a missing top left corner, and light smudging, while the scene cards display pinholes in the corners and borders, a scratch at the top left of one card, and a piece missing from the bottom right of another Nonetheless, these are classic cards from a classic comedy that any Chaplin fan will be proud to own and since material from the original release is so scarce, get them while you can. Fine/Very Fine.
