Goofs

Some men in the film, particularly the woodcutters, have longish hair and beards. While beards were somewhat out of fashion at the turn of the 20th century, they weren't unheard-of. However, you'd be hard-pressed to find pictures of any European or white North American men with long hair. See more »

Amazing Story !!

Such a heart warming story of two girls who were madly in love with each other and their struggles to be together at all cost. Give it a try you will not regret it.
