* GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion: Chaplin released a new version of this film in 1942 with sound. He added an original score and replaced all the title cards with his own narration. Some alternate shots were used, a key plot point was changed (Georgia's love letter to Jack becomes a love letter to Charlie) and the [[TheBigDamnKiss last scene]] was cut from the film. The Chaplin estate appears to consider this the definitive version, as it was on Disc 1 of the recent DVD release and the 1925 original was an "extra" on Disc 2.
** An alternative interpretation is that the silent version was only mastered for video in SD, and it would have been too difficult or expensive to remaster it in HD for the Blu-Ray.



* ReCut: See the details on the GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion.

Added DiffLines:

* MistakenMessage: Georgia writes an apologetic love letter to [[TheHeavy her boyfriend]], and he gives it to the Tramp as a cruel prank. The 1942 re-cut version changed this so that Georgia writes the note for the Tramp, making their LastMinuteHookup less unexpected.

* HappyEnding: one of the very few pure, unadulterated ones in the Chaplin canon where Charlie not only becomes a millionaire, but gets the girl afterward. It's even lampshaded in the 1942 narration.

* GoldDigger: A mild version considering Georgina does not hide that she is looking for a rich husband in the Klondike, but she's a nice enough woman whose love happens to have a price, but Charlie is wiling and able to pay it in the end.
