The Gold Rush originally premiered at Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on June 26th, 1925 as a silent film. Though Chaplin resisted including dialogue in films for some years after the introduction of sound, the advent of sound nevertheless enabled him to compose complete synchronized scores for his films, beginning with the release of City Lights in 1931. Chaplin returned to The Gold Rush in 1942, and revised it by replacing the silent-era title cards with a narration and by composing his own musical score. In the coming days, we’ll publish a new track from the full score once a day on youtube so you can listen from anywhere!
