Short movie "Heartless": backstory of the Tin Woodman Can't Post

I followed a link from an IMDB discussion board on "Oz the Great and Powerful" and found this surprisingly good short movie on youtube. It's faithful to the book, and it made me cry at the end. Very beautiful and sad, with a hint of eucatastrophe: Heartless

"For DORA BAGGINS in memory of a LONG correspondence, with love from Bilbo; on a large wastebasket. Dora was Drogo's sister, and the eldest surviving female relative of Bilbo and Frodo; she was ninety-nine, and had written reams of good advice for more than half a century."

Thank you [In reply to] Can't Post

I had no idea of the backstory of the characters, and this was very moving and beautifully done.

In the book [In reply to] Can't Post

I believe the girl was a servant, and it was her mistress who paid the witch, not her mother. But other than that it's pretty faithful to the book.

If you want to know what happened to Nimmie Amee (that's the girl's name) later, the book The Tin Woodman of Oz tells about it, but Baum got a little too whimsical and bizarre, and the outcome hinted at by the movie is better.
