Trivia

In his 1971 autobiography, Frank Capra himself maintains that this short feature was his first exposure to film, a job he bluffed his way into out of poverty-stricken desperation. After one look through the camera, as he describes it, he was shaken with thrills from head to foot. Capra went on to be one of the pre-eminent auteurs of early Hollywood. See more »
