    Hello Trish

    \"Young Pud is orphaned and left in the care of his grandparents. The boy and his cantankerous old grandfather become inseparable friends. But Gramps is concerned for his grandsons future and wary of a scheming relative who seeks to take over Puds custody. One day Mr. Brink, an agent of Death, arrives to take Gramps \"to the land where the woodbine twineth.\" Through a bit of trickery, Gramps traps Mr. Brink, and thus Death, at the top of an old apple tree, giving Gramps extra time to resolve issues about Puds future.\"

    This was a 1939 MGM film called \"On Borrowed Time. It starred Lionel Barrymore as Gramps, and Sir Cedric Hardwicke as Mr. Brink. The movie is all about the intensive role, which death plays in human lives. The film is based on different sentiments and emotions which are closely related to our common lives. The movie was set in a small American town, and depicts how the Barrymore raises his grandson with the help of his wife Nellie. The story is quite strong and acknowledged on different film platforms. The closing scenes are the catchiest ones.

    Glad to be of help.
