It's a busy day along the city sidewalks as an elderly pet-shop owner hangs a sign, "Puppies For Sale." Later, he's in his back room when he hears the shop bell jingle signaling a customer has entered. It's a lad in a baseball cap inquiring about the puppies. Four puppies bound in behind their mom, followed by a lagging fifth one with a congenital hip problem. That's the puppy the boy chooses, and he puts some crumpled bills and loose coins on the counter as a down payment. The man tries to dissuade the boy from taking the imperfect pup, but the lad insists and gets down on the floor to play with his new pet. The owner gets a surprise - and a lesson. Written by
This is a great film. I first saw it on Atomfilms.com, and I'm actually trying to locate it right now to buy. It teaches us A VERY IMPORTANT lesson in life. One of the greatest shorts, iv'e ever seen. And Jack Lemmon was a great actor, and it was great to see him in such a moving film. But the best thing about it was the writing. I always said, the most important part of making a movie is the story. While each part of the production is important, I feel the writing is the most important. Thats like the foundation of a house. And "Puppies For Sale" was a great story despite it being short. Another great thing about this film was that there were only 2 people in it. For a movie to have a small cast, there must be some really good writing involved in order to keep the attention of the viewers. If you have not seen this short,I highly recommend you to see it whenever you can. I saw this movie a few years ago online, and never forgot it!
