>The Gold Rush
Charlie Chaplin's comedic masterwork—which charts a prospector's search for fortune in the Klondike and his discovery of romance (with the beautiful Georgia Hale)—forever cemented the iconic status of Chaplin and his Little Tramp character. Shot partly on location in the Sierra Nevadas and featuring such timeless gags as the dance of the dinner rolls and the meal of boiled shoe leather, The Gold Rush is an indelible work of heartwarming hilarity.

>The Man from Snowy River
Inspired by the A B 'Banjo' Patterson epic poem The Man from Snowy River is an iconic Australian Western. It follows the story of headstrong Jim Craig (Tom Burlinson) who decides to head to the Snowy Mountains and work for a powerful cattle baron (Kirk Douglas). Problems arise when he is drawn into a 20 year family feud and falls in love with the boss's daughter Jessica (Sigrid Thornton). Amidst it all Craig sets out to prove his worth by capturing the fabled wild horse 'the colt from Old Regret'.
