Little Match Seller, The (1912)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Early adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's story with direction by Joseph Sullivan. Most probably know this story so I won't bore you with a plot detail but if you are a fan of the story then this is a must see. I was really surprised at how touching this short 3-minute film was and the special effects were very nice as well.

You can find this film on countless public domain releases and you can also find it online at various video forums. It's certainly worth you checking out.
