Chaplin, of course, is as good as ever here. In terms of the film's faults, I did feel that the segments on the mountain and within the town were slightly more disconnected than they could have been, however it's a very small nitpick. I myself still rate City Lights (1931) as my favourite of his films, but The Gold Rush clearly holds a significant acclaim to Chaplin's filmography. It may not have the thematic depth of his later works, but almost a century later the film firmly stands the test of time in terms of it's mixture of hilarity and sentimentality.
