A good lesson in humanity
3 July 2004 | by (Millbrook, AL) – See all my reviews

I ran the department United Way Campaign several years before I retired. Some people have to be convinced to dig down and come up with the dough for charity. This would have been a great short film to show as a part of that campaign. The Judge did a masterful job convincing Andy to dig way down and I suspect that many people who saw this back in 1938 got the message. It makes it very clear that we can touch many lives in such a good way when we give to an organization such as this. The Judge and Andy managed to entertain and still put their lesson in what we need to do in plain view. I want to thank Turner Classic Movies for pulling this one out of the vaults. They should try to show it again when the national campaigns are running as it is still extremely timely. If they do, I also recommend that you take the time to watch.
