One of the biggest myths about early films is that they were milestones but not exactly up to par on the entertainment and emotional fronts. Well, then. I lay down the gauntlet: watch this movie without turning into a sobbing mess by the end.
The story revolves around a little black poodle that brings its master his medicine faithfully until… Well, that would be telling. Anyway, heartstrings, heartstrings everywhere.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.The master dies and the poodle refuses to leave his grave.
If it were a dessert it would be: Molasses Candy. Old school but packs a wallop.
Availability: Released on DVD as part of Undercrank Productions’ Found at Mostly Lost Volume 2 collection with a piano score by Ben Model.
