I’ve been promising ladyhistory that I’d pick up the Mr. Washington Kindergarten teacher series again, so, this is me working on trying to get back to it!

There is a Pope in the Cars universe. This means that there is Catholic Christianity, which means there was a Jesus car who was crucified. Jesus Chrysler was crucified by car Romans under Pontiac Pilot who washed his wheels. A car was nailed to a cross and ascended to Heaven.

spooky-froll said: 'Gold Rush' was pretty intriguing. I don't think I've seen any Chaplin short or film like it! Black Larsen was pretty intimidating and menacing compared to other bullies the Tramp has encountered. And he strikes it rich and gets the girl!?!? That's just unusual!

It really is. I love the atmosphere of the thing, the latent darkness of characters like Black Larsen or Big Jim’s temptation to resort to cannibalism when he and the Tramp are trapped in the cabin. And then, there’s the ambiguity of Georgia’s profession. Out of all Chaplin’s feature films, only in The Gold Rush and Modern Times does he walk off with the female lead.

An interesting companion piece to TGR is the Mickey Mouse short, The Klondike Kid (1932), which was so obviously inspired by the Chaplin movie with its heart and climax in a cabin. It’s more pre-code than most Disney output, with Mickey drinking and hammering some ragtime away on a piano in a seedy bar while Goofy dances with a scantily-clad pig ladyAnd Pegleg Pete’s incarnation here is definitely modeled after the threatening Black Larsen with the way he flashes his guns and has decidedly unsavory designs on Minnie.

Anyways, love the TGR and I’m glad you enjoyed it too!
