Buoyed by their mother, the girls learn the meaning of giving and sacrifice with a jollity that may be off-putting to jaded 21st century viewers, especially when faced with the March girls presenting a "play" in their living room to the delight of invited neighbors and the consternation of one cantankerous but lovable aunt. The girls' placid lives are disrupted when one sibling falls ill, and the story becomes as real as life, at its most joyful and painful

Chang : a drama of the wilderness by Merian C Cooper( Visual )

33 editions published between 1927 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before they dreamed up that oversized ape, King Kong's creators filmed this magical story of a Thai family's struggle to survive the forces of nature. CHANG is a revelation - not only is it the obvious prototype for Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack's later masterpiece, King Kong but it is a terrifically entertaining film in it own right! Shot entirely in Siam, the film tells the story of a farmer and his family who have settled a small patch of land on the edge of the jungle. Their existence is a constant struggle against the many wild animals around them - bear, tigers, and even - changs! The climactic elephant stampede is still one of the most exciting scenes in cinema history
