What a cunt, she intruded into their house, ate their damn porridge, slept in their beds and after gets the parents killed and the child bear enslaved. Also teddy bears...
UTTER SPOILER ALERT..
Seriously, do not read on until you have seen the film...
What on earth is the moral behind this one? The bratty girl breaks in, vandalises, steals.. and it's the bears that get shot?
And then returns to the house to loot the place?
Or is that missing the point? is this really a 'very ahead of it's time' political satire? I mean.. the hunter, well, has more than a passing similarity to Teddy Roosevelt.. and this was made not too long after - well within popular memory - of the 'Drawing the line' incident....Is Potter making avery damning critic of US imperialist / militarist policy? Or am I trying to read too much into it?
This would have been much better if they edited out about 13 minutes.
