The Spell of the Yukon: The story of the Gold Rush and of legendary Dawson City. Visits with today's hard scrabble miners are interwoven with archival photographs which re-create the frontier atmosphere of a hundred years ago. Gritty and humorous like the people who still live there, this video is as much about the human spirit as it is about the last frontier (43 min. 10 sec.). Yukon Gold: A compilation of two golden classics! Gold A fascinating look at how gold is trapped and hand-sorted (1955); and Frozen Gold of the Klondike A lively look at gold mining in the Klondike from gold-rush days to the present (1981) (27 min. 52 sec.). City of Gold: A nostalgic recollection of the Klondike Gold Rush, with commentary by Dawson City-born Pierre Berton. A 1957 black & white classic and Oscar® nominee (21 min. 40 sec.).
