The Little Match Girl (1902)

I wanted to put this up yesterday but I got distracted and forgot, so here is Silent Film Sunday a day late.  This version of the Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Match Girl was made by James Williamson in 1902 and called The Little Match Seller.  Williamson was an important early film maker whose use of continuous action shots helped establish story telling structure for film. 


  1. When I read the story when I was kid, it made me feel so sad. The film is beautiful. Thank you for sharing. We wish you a warm and happy Christmas!!

  2. Wishing you and your family happy holiday. Have a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
    Best wishes Molly
