Edward G. Robinson,
A Forgotten Film of EXCELLENCE - Highly recommended version of this story!
Firstly, I cannot believe that this short film has no reviews, and that I am the first to review it. I saw this film many years ago possibly 30 years ago. Despite the time, this film has still left a lasting impression. I would rank it as one of the great short films with An Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge and The Red Balloon. Do not waste your time with the newer versions until you have seen this one.
Without spoiling anything, this film is about a man traveling by foot in the snow with his dog.
Again, I am completely flabbergasted that this film is virtually forgotten on this website. It is a shame. Perhaps someone can upload some artwork from this film to help flesh out its profile.
