An agreeable little story

This kind of topic is not my cup of tea, but I admit that one is worth seeing, inventive, with a sort of social impact. The old female beggar's character - Jessie - is adorable, funny and touching and Jeannette Nolan's performance emphasizes the convincing impact of this so simple but beautiful tale. Her performance would deserve an Academy Award, no problem. Richard Boone directed this episode and it is a good piece of work, I think he had great skills for film making. We could have expected from him an action story, mainly for tough men characters, such as the ones he mainly showed during his career, and not such a story, a social character study.
