Aero Theatre presents a Charlie Chaplin double feature of the following films:
THE GOLD RUSH:
Coming off his first major financial failure, A WOMAN OF PARIS, writer-director Charlie Chaplin responded with what many consider his finest feature-length film. The Lone Prospector (Chaplin) travels to the far-off Yukon in search of gold but ends up falling in love with dance-hall girl Georgia Hale. The classic “dance of the dinner rolls” and “boiled shoe leather” scenes show Chaplin’s gift for poignant comedy at its very best.
In his first film masterpiece, Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp, following his paternal instincts, takes a hapless, orphaned baby – “the Kid” – under his wing. Five years pass, and the tyke is now a precocious little boy (Jackie Coogan), helping his foster dad, the Tramp, in his “window-glass replacement” scam. But a confluence of events, including the Kid’s sudden illness, conspire to separate the two.
