About the Event

Watch silent movies the way they were meant to be seen—on the big screen. Showcasing a wide variety of early cinema in the best available formats, The Silent Treatment is a long-running silent movie film series curated by film archivists Brandee Cox and Steven Hill.

One of Charlie Chaplin’s most celebrated works, the movie was inspired by the Klondike Gold Rush and the Donner Party, as Chaplin turned stories of deprivation and horror into comedy. Featuring his iconic Little Tramp character and such timeless gags as the dance of the dinner rolls and the meal of boiled shoe leather, Chaplin himself considered this the film by which he most wanted to be remembered. With an introduction by Jeffrey Vance, author of Chaplin: Genius of the Cinema.
Directed by Charlie Chaplin | Starring Charlie Chaplin, Mack Swain, Tom Murray | Screened in 35mm | Original score composed by Chaplin in 1942
