I'd love to see the short films "The Life you Save" starring Gene Kelly and the short film "Occurance at Owl Creek Bridge" added to the content. Short films are easier to show in literature classes than feature length movies.

Hi Cherie,

We actually do have a version of "Occurance at Owl Creek Bridge" on SAFARI Montage. It is part of both the 9-12 Core Content Package and the K-12 Core Content Package. We also have quite a few other short stories from The American Short Story Collection. You can see a full listing of the titles in the K-12 Core Content Package or the 9-12 Core Content package on Of course, with key concepts, chapters, or customized bookmarking you can always show clips from longer works of literature rather than a full feature length program.

Thanks for the comment! Lori
