The Gold Fraud,
This review is from: The Gold Rush - Dual Format Edition [Blu-ray]   (Blu-ray)
Beware! Only the inferior 1942 version is included on the blu-ray disc, and the image quality is only so-so. Wait until you get a better offer.

The Sweet poetry of Pus says:
How can they justify doing that, the greed filled scum? The people responsible know full well that just about everyone eminently prefers the 1925. Scum, scum, scum. It's despicable that Amazon doesn't clarify this, as well.

I doubt that very much. I worked on the Warner Home Video release of this, and they were supportive of both versions being included even though they only held the copyright on the re-edited version (Chaplin re-edited the film so he could renew the copyright). This sounds more like a cost-cutting measure when mastering for BD because the new rights holders didn't want to pay Photoplay for their restoration.
