A guaranteed original U.S. theatrical '8 x 10' movie still for the 1942 release of Charlie Chaplin's 1925 silent comedy "The Gold Rush".
Written, directed (and scored) by Chaplin, this is the movie with the classic sequence of a snowbound Chaplin eating his shoe! It was was filmed on location, but only a small part was filmed in the High Sierras. For the closing scenes, Chaplin had artificial mountains created out of chicken wire, burlap, 200 tons of plaster, 285 tons of salt, and 100 barrels of flour. Four carloads of "cornfetti" were used for the blizzard scenes. The entire production took over a year, from first filming to final cut!
Originally released in 1925 as a silent film, Chaplin re-released the film in 1942 with a recorded musical score and his own narration. This version of the film was Oscar nominated and Chaplin is quoted as saying it is the film for which he most wanted to be remembered.
This theatrical still was released by United Artists in advance of the celebrated 1942 release. As you can see from our photos, it is in superb condition and displays really well.
