The Gold Rush

When: Sun., Dec. 30, 7-10 p.m. 2012

It's one of the most quintessentially Charlie Chaplin movie moments caught on film: The Little Tramp excitedly sharpens his fork and knife before gingerly placing them aside and tearing his first bite out of his dinner -- a leather shoe cooked to soft perfection. He chews, considers, chews more, and then raises his eyebrows in a content pronouncement of, "Eh, not bad!" The scene appears in the 1925 Chaplin classic The Gold Rush, which Chaplin often declared as the film he wanted to be most remembered for. Join the Berkeley Underground Film Society at The Tannery (708 Gilman St., Berkeley) on Sunday, Dec. 30, for a special screening of the film, on magnificent Super 8. 7:30 p.m., donations accepted.
