The Gold Rush, 1925, was written by, produced by, directed by, and starred Charlie Chaplin. This is a scene in the movie in which the lead character, the Tramp (played by Charlie Chaplin), is starving and resorts to cooking and eating his show - with impeccable table manners.

While the original Gold Rush was a silent film, Charlie Chaplin reworked the original for a 1942 re-release. He added music and narration (by Chaplin) and changed a couple of details in the movie. It's been said The Gold Rush was the film by which he wanted to be remembered.

Chaplin's character was funny and poignant at the same time. He was an original - and a classic.
