Mini Tribute: Georgia Hale

Born June 24, 1905 Silent Actress Georgia Hale!

Georgia Hale appeared in 22 films (21 silents and 1 talkie) but is probably best
remembered as Georgia the Dance-Hall Girl (Charlie Chaplin’s ‘crush’) in
The Gold Rush

“If I could only meet someone worthwhile — I’m so tired of this place.” -Georgia Hale in The Gold Rush

“Please, please, don’t put him in irons. I’ll pay his fare.”
– Georgia Hale in The Gold Rush


A little bit of trivia: Chaplin hired Hale to replace Virginia Cherrill as the Blind Girl in City Lights after firing Cherrill for leaving the set for a hair appointment. Chaplin filmed some scenes with Hale, but ultimately decided to rehire Cherrill (at twice the salary) rather than scrap all of his work and re-shoot over 500 days of film.
