little match girl


Hi,
I am desperatly attempting to get a copy of this movie on vhs or dvd. When I was in elementary school the entire school was taken to a viewing room to watch this movie at christmas time. I tell other people about it and they can't believe our school would subject young kids to this tragic story. If anyone out there knows where I can get a copy of this movie, I would be so grateful!
please contact me at

Yes, I just bought the cartoon. It was on DVD called the Piped Piper of Hamelin. I got it at target for 50 cents. Hurry though, because I doubt they will sell them for very long.

Is that the one with Jim Backus in it? I saw a DVD of it at a dollar store.

If you're still looking for it, The Little Mermaid has it on their bonus features DVD. I just saw it for the first time and it definitely impacted me.

That is a different version. The original is far better.

I'm looking for a version of this film as well....i've seen screenshots of this, and it doesn't look like the version i remember.....i saw it on PBS in the mid 80s, and i seem to remember either a stop-motion/claymation style, similar to the Frosty The Snowman specials from the 50s, or perhaps it was "limited animation", where a still frame was used and panned or zoomed in while a voice told the story over it....

am i crazy? i can find no reference to this version anywhere, and it's really got me freaked out...

reply

No, you are correct. I saw it in the seventies, and I remember it being wooden puppet type stop-motion style. I too can't find any info on it! Would love to though, maybe someone else can help?!

You know, the story is written by Hans Christian Andersen, who was a Dane, so I've grown up having it being read to me as a goodnight story. And I must admit that I don't find it that tragic. She gets peace in the end, and someone gives her the love and caring that she deserves... Maybe the original story is different from the film, but anyway, just thought I'd mention it.
Btw, howcome there are no mentioning of Hans Christian Andersen in this movie site?
