Newspaper Ad for 1942 Re-release of Chaplin’s THE GOLD RUSH
oh, how i pine for the good ol’ days of movie promos, back before the era of photoshop and floating heads. before the age of teaser clips for teaser trailers that premiere during award shows on MTV. i mean, sure, this silly newspaper “quiz” for The Gold Rush is, um, silly, but gloriously so. also, i totally aced this quiz cause i’m a total movie genius (no big deal).
anyway, the folks over at blu-ray.com have posted a wonderfully exhaustive piece on the making and selling of The Gold Rush, which is absolutely overflowing with neat artifacts and details. do yourself a favor and check it out.
