Hannah and the Dog Ghost (1981)
Still terrific after 25 years...
I, too, saw this short film (30 minutes) for the first time in elementary school and I never forgot it. I recently ordered the DVD online and it's just as great as I remembered.
A dramatic folk tale about family love, loyalty, and courage, Hannah and the Dog Ghost is a classic. The sets and "special effects" are simple, but effective, and do not detract from the power of the story and its characters.
The evil Fiddlin' Man is not easily forgotten, but Hannah will also resonate with viewers as a symbol of persistence in the face of adversity. Every child should get the chance to see this-it's really a gem.
