Classic Entertainment Re-release one-sheet poster for the the Charles Chaplin directed masterpiece, THE GOLD RUSH. The film stars Chaplin in his Little Tramp persona, Georgia Hale, Mack Swain, Tom Murray and Malcolm Waite. Chaplin drew inspiration from pictures of the Klondike Gold Rush and the Donner Party who, when snowbound in the Sierra Nevada were driven to cannibalism. Chaplin who believed tragedies and comics were not far from each other, decided to combine these stories of deprivation and horror in comedy. The Gold Rush received Academy Award nominations for the Best Music and Best Sound Recording upon its re-release in 1942. It is today one of Chaplin's most celebrated works and Chaplin himself wanted to be remembered for this performance. This poster, of course, is a re-release poster dating from the eighties. The poster was used in a cinema in Canada and has a Province of Quebec censor stamp on the poster. MovieArt Original Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees this poster is authentic. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
