in the Woods" (1918)
Another of those splendid children's classics, "Babes in the Woods," continues the delightful Fox Kiddies series. It is a comgination of the old tale of the same name with "Hansel and Gretel." Virginia Lee Corbin, the dainty maiden who can weep to order and continue indefinitely, is tragically charming with Francis Carpenter as a pocket edition of Francis Ten Bushman. Any adult who cannot enjoy these pictures as much as the youngster do should hasten to be shrived for his sins. The brother directors, C.M. and S.A. Franklin, have beautified this story by filming it among the California redwoods.
