What I have done in The Gold Rush is exactly what I wanted to do. I have no excuses, no alibis. I have done just as I liked with this picture. If people do not like it, you see I haven’t a word to say.
Back of it all— back of the funny clothes, the mustache and the big feet— I wanted to produce something that would stir people. I was after the feeling of Alaska, with a sweet, poetic, yet comic, love story. When I started on this film I sweated hard to keep the original thought. That is where many of us go wrong. We sell ourselves an idea and then leave it flat— with the result that we have nothing in the end but hodge-podge.
I wanted the audiences to cry and laugh. Whatever may be the public’s opinion of this effort, I have at any rate been successful in clinging to my original idea.
