Storyline

This 'Special' entry from the Warners/Vitaphone shorts department is less the story of Clara Barton, and more the story of how Clara Barton helped further the cause of the Red Cross in the United States and the birth of the American Red Cross. Barton went through many trials and setbacks before she succeeded. This short, as was all Warners' shorts, was made for the express purpose of theatrical release and not as something made with the school market in mind. Many of their 'Historic America' shorts were later made available for school showings. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A very touching film.
30 December 2001 | by (Parkersburg, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

A very touching and well-done short subject about Clara Barton and the Red Cross. Great performance by Fay Helm as Miss Barton, this film also has great technicolor, good supporting performances, and very good use of music. I liked it very much. If you like short subjects and can find them on television, be sure and watch this one. It is a very good one.
