A delightful interpretation of the classic Christmas song.
18 February 2004 | by (Rancho La Costa, CA USA) – See all my reviews

This represents the loss of another classic George K. Arthur film short, seemingly forgotten by the the industry. Evidently, this little short was conceived, written, directed and starred in by Wendy Toye. No special effects; just a charming, literal and creative presentation of a young man burying his lady in holiday gifts. Too bad that it hasn't been seen since it appeared as a mere fill on early subscription television. Delightfully charming. Should be seen annually at holiday time.
