A reality-based crime drama set in Minnesota in 1987. Jerry Lundegaard (William H.

Charlie Chaplin’s comedic masterwork, which charts a prospector’s search for fortune in the Klondike and his discovery of romance (with the beautiful Georgia Hale), forever cemented the iconic status of Chaplin and his Little Tramp character. Shot partly on location in the Sierra Nevadas and featuring such timeless gags as the dance of the dinner rolls and the meal of boiled shoe leather, THE GOLD RUSH is an indelible work of heartwarming hilarity.

Keep an eye out for both Murphy and Hall in some unforgettable cameo roles!
