This silent classic has many strong points – it has a lot of humor, interesting characters, a good story and good settings. It’s the kind of film that shows how much a master film-maker can communicate in a silent movie. It overdoes the sentimentality on occasion, but other than that it’s a fine film.

Chaplin himself plays the ‘Lone Prospector’, and he is joined by several other interesting characters in a frozen north setting that sets up some good adventures and drama. There are some memorable scenes in the prospectors’ rickety cabins, plus some other good material.
