A vivid recollection of the Klondike gold rush at its frenzied height, City of Gold uses a collage of still photographs to compare Dawson City of the gold rush, when the gold from its river beds flowed freely through the stores, taverns and dance halls, with the more tranquil Dawson City of the present. In this 1957 classic film, Pierre Berton recreates those agonizing months during which would-be prespectors struggled through steep passes and wintery trails to reach the fabled gold fields 2,000 miles north of civilization.
