A small girl makes her living selling matches on the streets of New York. It's winter, and the hustling crowds at best ignore her, and some are outright rude. She takes shelter and, to try to stave off the cold a bit, lights a match. It gets blown out; this happens again, then on the third try, she falls into a dream. In this dream, cherubs attend her, she gets a new doll, then a new dress. The cherubs put her on a throne. Then a storm comes, and she goes toward a candle. That candle goes out, and we see that back in the real world, so did her match and her life. An angel comes along and takes her soul. Written by

Animated classic with a tremendous emotional impact. I saw this film in a theatre way back in the 1970s and many people were crying at the end. Very touching film from the Columbia cartoon folks. Hopefully, it will be available some day on tape or DVD.
