Plot Summary
Gramps (Lionel Barrymore) is getting on in years, but he's not going gently into that good night. He has an orphaned grandson, Pud (Bobs Watson), to look after and protect from his conniving aunt, Demetria (Eily Malyon). So when death comes to claim him in the form of debonair Mr. Brink (Cedric Hardwicke), Gramps tricks him into climbing his magic apple tree, from which no one can escape. Gramps is delighted, but soon learns the cost of postponing death for too long.
