Oscar Nominated & Excellent!
29 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure where IMDb comes up with a rating of 4 on an Oscar NOMINATED film that has a "mathematical mean" of 7...

This is now on the King Of The Corner DVD as an "extra" (as of 10-28-05).

This short film is excellent! The writing is tremendous and the acting superb.

Peter Riegert and company have done a wonderful job of adapting this O' Henry classic - comedic misdirection's and all.

Great job!

Please, Riegert, make more films!!
