The Gold Rush

[2003 restoration titles]

1 
During the Great Gold Rush 
 of Alaska, men in thousands 
came from all parts of the world. 
Many of them were ignorant of the 
hard-ships before them, the 
intense cold, the lack of food --
and a journey through regions 
of ice and snow was a problem 
     that awaited them.

2
The Chilkoot Pass. 
 A test of man's 
endurance. At this 
point many turned back 
discouraged, whilst 
others went bravely on.

3
The Top of the Pass.

4
Three days from anywhere.
  A Lone Prospector.

5
Another lone prospector.

6
Big Jim's Lucky Strike.

7
"I've found it! I've found 
 it! A Mountain of Gold." 

8
Then came a storm.

9
A Lone Cabin.

10
And a lone man.

11
"Get out of here!"

12
"Get out, the pair
     of you."

13
"There's another bullet 
  left, so beat it!"

14
"I'll stay right here!"

15
The storm raged 
   for days.

16
And three men were 
     hungry.

17
"I must have food!"

18
"What are you eating?"

19
"Nothing."

20
"We must get food. One
 of us must brave that 
       storm."

21
"We'll cut the cards, and
   the low man goes."

22
The Hand of the Law.

23
"Black Larsen!"

24
Thanksgiving Dinner.

25
Indifferent to his comrades 
  plight, Black Larsen
stumbles on the claim of 
     Big Jim McKay.

26
"Food! Food!"

27
"I thought you was
    a chicken."

28
"I'm sorry, I must
    be crazy."

29
Chicken or no chicken,
  his friend looks 
    appetizing.

30
Then came the parting 
of the ways. One to 
his secret mine. The 
 other to his fate. 

31
Back to the mountain 
      of gold.

32
The North. A law 
  unto itself.

33
One of the many cities 
  in the Far North, 
built overnight during 
 the great gold rush.

34
Jack. The ladies 
      man.

35
Georgia.

36
"Georgia."

37
A disappointed 
  prospector.

38
The only gold he made 
with pick and shovel. 

39
That night in the Monte 
  Carlo dance hall.

40
Georgia.

41
The Stranger.

42
"What's wrong with you 
   tonight, dear?"

43
"I guess I'm bored."

44
"If I could only meet 
 some one worth while -- 
 I'm so tired of this place." 

45
"How's the little 
   spitfire?" 

46
"Oh quit that stuff and 
     have a drink."

47
"You're pretty fresh,
     ain't ya?" 

48
"Come on now, me
and you are going
   to dance."

49
"Hey you! Come here!"

50
"Do you mind dancing 
      with me?"
       
51
"You see, I'm very 
 particular who I 
   dance with." 

52
The following morning.

53
Hank Curtis cabin. Within 
  a stone throw of the 
       dance hall. 

54
One way of getting 
    breakfast. 

55
Big Jim McKay owing 
  to the blow he 
had received, lost his 
memory and wandered
  aimlessly on.

56
Hank Curtis and his 
partner prepare for 
a trip to their mine. 

57
"Who is the little 
     fellow?"

58
"Just someone to take
 care of the cabin 
  while I'm away."

59
"Don't forget to feed 
     the mule." 

60
Away from the
 dance hall.

61
Georgia.

62
"I haven't seen you since 
  we danced together."

63
"I guess you're lonesome 
        here."

64
"Yes Mam."

65
"Why don't you invite us 
  to dinner sometime?" 

66
"Oo! Yes Mam."

67
"Will you really come 
     to dinner?"

68
"Oh yes! Let's make it
 New Year's Eve, girls."

69
"Very well, eight o'clock
    New Year's Eve."

70
"I left my gloves."

71
To make possible the 
New Year's dinner, 
he begged, borrowed 
  and shovelled.

72
New Year's Eve.

73
Five minutes to Eight.

74
"Hello Georgia!"

75
"Hello Jack!"

76
"Speech! Speech!"

77
"I'm so h-h-happy -
  Oh, I can't --"

78
"But I'll dance the 
   Oceana Roll."

79
"He's wonderful!"

80
"Our old friend Scotty will
   sing Auld Lang Syne."

81
 "That reminds me,
our little friend the 
      tramp."

82
"Let's go up and have 
 some fun with him." 

83
"Do you love me?"

84
"Yes."

85
"You go first. We'll
 scare the wits out 
     of him."

86
"Isn't he here?"

87
"Well it doesn't matter.
      Kiss me."

88
"Please don't!"

89
"The joke has gone 
 too far, let's go!" 

90
"Why don't you 
   kiss me?"

91
"You will!"

92
The recorder's office
  the next day. Big 
Jim McKay wanders 
    into town.

93
"I have a mountain 
     of gold." 

94
"Where is this place?"

95
"I can't remember."

96
"The Cabin! That's it! 
If I only knew the way 
to the Cabin, I could 
   find the mine." 

97
"I'm sorry Jim, but
 we're very busy."

98
In the Dance Hall. 
   That night.

99
"Come here bum."

100
"Say! Come here."

101
"Give that bum this 
 note, and don't tell 
   him I sent it." 

102
"Have you seen 
   Georgia?" 

103
"Where's Georgia?" 

104
"Where's Georgia?" 

105
"THE CABIN!" 

106
"THE CABIN!" 

107
"THE CABIN!" 

108
"The Cabin! The Cabin! 
 Take me to the cabin."

109
"Take me to the Cabin 
 and I'll make you a 
millionaire in less than 
      a month."

110
"GEORGIA!"

111
"Georgia, I got your 
      note --"

112
"- and now I'm going to 
 make good --"

113
"To the Cabin!"

114
After a long and tedious 
       journey.

115
"The Cabin at last!"

116
"Bring in the eats, and
 in the morning we'll
  start for the mine."

117
Man proposes, but 
 a storm disposes.

118
And as our slumbering 
heroes slept throughout
the storm -- fate guided 
them to a spot where all 
       was calm.

119
Blissful ignorance. 

120
Preparing for breakfast.

121
"It's the stomach."

122
"I'll see what's outside."

123
"Take it easy!"

124
"Don't move! Don't
    breathe!"

125
"My Claim! My Claim!
 At last I've found my
        claim."

126
"Look! We're rich! We're 
     millionaires." 

127
Good bye Alaska.
  Homeward bound on
the good ship success.

128
"Make way for the
 Multi-millionaires."

129
The Press.

130
"The press is publishing 
 a story of your career.
 Would you kindly pose 
 for us in your mining 
       clothes? 

131
"No, no, not the nails --
       the corns."

132
Everything but Georgia.

133
Georgia.

134
Searching for 
 a stowaway.

135
"He's in the steerage 
 here somewhere. If
I find him I'll put him 
      in irons."

136
"So you're the stowaway --
I've been looking for you."

137
"Please, please, don't
put him in irons. I'll
    pay his fare."

138
   "A stowaway, heck!
That's Big Jim's partner, 
 the Multi-millionaire."

139
"James. Make arrangements 
   for another guest." 

140
"Excuse me, Sir --
 Who is the Lady?"

141
"Congratulations."

142
"Gee! This will make 
 a wonderful story." 

143
"Hold! Still!"

144
"Oh! You've spoilt 
  the picture."
