This is a feel-good short about a teacher in a one-room school. I have no idea why it won an Oscar (one reel short). Maybe it was lack of competition. There is nothing really wrong with the film, but nothing terribly right with it either. I saw this on TCM during the "31 Days of Oscar" series. It will almost certainly be shown on TCM at least once in February in future years.
