This classic MGM silent epic features equal parts romance and adventure as it tells of the Yukon gold rush of 1896. Faithfully re-creating the lines of mountain-trekking gold diggers on location, Trail demonstrates the bold ambitions of filmmaking before the age of digital effects. In one of her rare roles as an American, del Rio portrays the young Jewish granddaughter of a fortune-seeker. 1928, U.S., B/W, 35mm, 87 minutes.
