Storyline

A wealthy retired farmer and his wife deeply regret that they have no child to cheer them in their old age. They are attracted by the sounds of happy children playing in the snow outside and go to the window to watch them. The children are building a snowman and the old farmer proposes to his wife that they too shall go out in the snow and build a snow child. They select a spot in the front yard and build a child out of snow. The neighbors think they have gone crazy, but the man and his wife continue their childish amusement until they have finished a beautiful snow child. They then return to the house and resuming their former places in front of the fire fall asleep and dream that their snow child has come to life. The snow child fades away and a real live child is there in place of it. It dances about for joy and dances its way into the house. The farmer and his wife awake to find their dream come true. They are astonished and amazed, and cannot believe that it is a real live child.... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Will please the women and children
11 August 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In some respects the plot of this picture develops scenes that are productive of an intense emotional sort. There are some beautiful snow scenes, also home scenes that remind one of bygone days. These is a double visualization that is very beautiful, but which is ruined in the finale. This picture will please the women and children. - The Moving Picture World, May 23, 1914
