The Humanities Center is excited to present Silent Film Fridays, where select Friday afternoons we will be showing a famous silent film throughout the Spring semester. Come enjoy the origins of film with your friends and watch where it all started.

This week's film is "The Gold Rush" (1925), directed by Charlie Chaplin. In this classic silent comedy, the Little Tramp (Charles Chaplin) heads north to join in the Klondike gold rush. Trapped in a small cabin by a blizzard, the Tramp is forced to share close quarters with a successful prospector (Mack Swain) and a fugitive (Tom Murray). Eventually able to leave the cabin, he falls for a lovely barmaid (Georgia Hale), trying valiantly to win her affections. When the prospector needs help locating his claim, it appears the Tramp's fortunes may change.
