THE POPPY SEEDS

A simple story of Mexican Indian faith has Jean Charlot's pictures to emphasize the sentiment as it tells of young Pablo and how he brought water to a dry valley. Given some poppy seeds one day, Pablo is warned they will never grow, but by accident he leaves some of the seeds by the stream that runs through the jealously guarded property of Old Antonio. Old Antonio chases him away, but when the seeds grow and blossom, his convictions about the boy's intentions are changed and the old man's reward to the boy is the opening of his stream for the use of all the valley's people.
