Director Alice Guy’s tearjerker short about a little girl trying to save her older sister still earns more than a few sniffles today.
Guy’s trademark visual depth and sensitivity are on display here in this O. Henry-esque film. One of her most famous for a reason and well worth seeing.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.
The little girl does end up saving her sister, just not the way she thought.
If it were a dessert it would be: Creamy Maple Candy. Old-fashioned in a wonderful kind of way.
Availability: Released on DVD and Bluray.
