Chaplin's Gold Rush Live Screening
A sequel event to last year’s ‘Metropolis’ the Music Department will screen another silent film with live orchestral accompaniment performed by the Sheffield University Salon Orchestra. Directed, written, starring and music by Charlie Chaplin, 'The Gold Rush' sees Chaplin’s most memorable character ‘the tramp’ travel to the Klondike, Canada in search of gold. The film Chaplin himself repeatedly said he wanted to be remembered for is an epic slapstick comedy, packed full of outstanding gags, romance and heartbreak and features one of the most brilliant dance sequences in film history - ‘The Dance of the Dinner Rolls’. The Sheffield University Salon Orchestra is directed by George Morton.
