“Auld Lang Syne”

In his autobiography, Chaplin wrote that certain songs created the mood for his films. For The Immigrant it was an old song called “Mrs. Grundy,” for Twenty Minutes Of Love, a popular two-step called “Two Much Mustard,” Jose Padilla’s “La Violatera” set the mood for City Lights, and lastly, for The Gold Rush, the mood was created with “Auld Lang Syne,” which Charlie hears the revelers singing during this poignant scene in the film.
