City of Gold

Canada, 1957 (MIFF 1958, Travel Bag)

Director: Colin Low, Wolf Koenig

A nostalgic recollection of the Klondike gold rush when the gold fever was at its height. The feeling of retrospect is deepened by the introduction of many vintage photographs which help to bring alive the men, and the women, who left their mark in the annals of the period.
