THE SALVATION HUNTERS (1925)

Here's a chance to see one of Chaplin's favorite films, Josef Von Sternberg's The Salvation Hunters. This was the film that brought Georgia Hale to the attention of Chaplin, who hired her to replace pregnant Lita Grey in The Gold Rush.

  1. This is a beautifully photographed film, with a somber subject matter - I can see why Chaplin was struck by Georgia's performance. I can't remember where I saw this film before - it might have been on TCM? The film has a very surreal quality too it, much like "Sunrise".
