Each individual will live over again his own school days

Author: deickemeyer from Chicago
12 September 2015

Those who are of middle age and went to school in the old country schoolhouse will be carried back through the years when they see this, and will see again the group of children who gathered with him in the schoolhouse back there on the hillside, shaded by maples and elms in Summer, and afflicted with huge cracks that let in the cold blast in Winter. Never mind the cold of Winter only the pleasant memories remain. And this picture brings them all back again and makes them live and move and become real again. The vision will appear over a row of graves, and there will be many gaps in the line of those left behind, but this film will vitalize it, and will reproduce it so vividly it cannot be mistaken. The story of the pupils' love for their teacher and the vigorous method they took to get him back again will add to the interest. But different faces will appear and each individual will live over again his own school days and the pleasant memories will blend with the picture on the screen until somehow it will be the old school reproduced and revivified and all sense of the present will be lost as the reminiscences of the past will overwhelm and encompass him round about. - The Moving Picture World, October 15, 1910
