Editorial Reviews

Screen favorite Alyssa Milano (TV's CHARMED, MELROSE PLACE) stars as a spirited young woman determined to strike it rich in the Great Alaskan Gold Rush! Frances "Fizzy" Fitz (Milano) is a turn-of-the-century New Yorker who yearns to trade her high-society life for a rough-and-tumble adventure in the rugged wilds of Alaska! In order to get there, however, Fizzy needs the help of P.T. Madison (Bruce Campbell, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN 2), a charming con artist who nearly turns the entire venture into a complete disaster! An inspirational and highly entertaining story everyone will love -- you'll cheer for Fizzy as she overcomes impossible odds to make her dreams come true!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie for girls May 10, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I watched and taped this when it was on TV in 1997 and loved it. I couldn't wait for it to come out on video so I could buy it.
It's a story about a young woman (Alyssa Milano) who gets Gold Rush Fever in the early 1900's and makes up her mind about going from her very nice city life to the harsh wilderness of Alaska to make her fortune in gold.
After having to prove herself worthy of joining a company of all men, she overcomes a harsh winter trek through the wildnerss of Alaska.
Eventually, she proves that anyone, regardless if they are man or woman, can make their dreams come true if they are willing to work for it.
This is a great empowering movie for young girls and teenagers as well as for the guys because of it's real message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Gold! June 20, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Here is a great family movie of adventure, determination, heroism, and bravery. Plus, it's set back in the late 1800s, which makes it even more interesting. Fizzy (Alyssa Milano) leaves her high society life in New York and sets out for Alaska in search of gold. It's an adventurous, courageous storyline, and Alyssa is fabulous at playing the innocent, wholesome, confident, no-nonsense, caring and lovely Fizzy...a great role-model. This is one of my favorite movies. It is a movie to be watched again and again and will inspire you and enrich your life without a doubt. Not only is the storyline excellent, but the movie also has fabulous scenery and music and is wonderfully directed. This movie is as good as gold!

4.0 out of 5 stars Alyssa looks good! July 7, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
So we know that Alyssa can look good in all of her films, but can she make watching them more interesting by her acting? Well yes actually. This film is a fun, exciting Disney movie, where Alyssa plays Fizzy, who is searching for gold and gives quite a solid perfomance with a strong-willed role, whilst also being able to look as if she is enjoying herself. Good fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie... April 11, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I owned this movie on VHS and searched to find it on DVD. I was so pleased to finally be able to purchase it on DVD. Goldrush: A Real Life Alaskan Adventure is a true story about a young NYCity girl that made it in Alaska. This is also a movie you can enjoy with the whole family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fair start to the "Generations Collection." July 24, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I need to say, I want to actually rate this film at about 3 and a half stars, but since that isn't an option, I'll round up to four purely becuase I'm so happy to see this collection in existence and want it to do better.

Anyway, as I'm the head of a Disney DVD fan campaign to get un-release Disney films and shows on DVD (OPEN VAULT DISNEY), I was of course very happy when I first heard that this new "Generations Collection" was being created. I very much hope and want to see it become more then it is right now, and hope we see more selections available in the months to come.

As this is the first film in this new collection I've had the chance to buy, it will serve as my review for the whole collection to date. I'll first talk about the DVD's themselves, and then about this film in particular.

The DVD, similar to the first few waves of the great Warner Archive DVD's, came in very simple packaging with a themed background that text and images for whatever the film in question is can be placed on top of. On the back and the spine, it clearly states that it is a DVD-R formatted disc. The top of the back reads:

"Disney opens the archives to present a collectable series of films that once captured the hearts of devoted fans everywhere. Experience the magic of the Disney Generations Collection - warm, wonderful classics that will delight audiences of all ages - available for the first time ever on DVD!"

I'm guessing that tag line is on the backs of all of these films, but as stated already, I have only been able to pick this one up so far. Once I put the disc in, it went straight to the main menu screen.
