O. Henry’s Full House is a 1952 American anthology film made by 20th Century Fox, consisting of five films, each based on a story by O. Henry.

1: “The Cop and the Anthem” (Henry Koster). As winter approaches, a vagrant decides it’s time for his annual winter spell in prison. But no matter how hard he tries, he cannot get himself arrested.

2: “The Clarion Call” (Henry Hathaway). A detective cannot arrest a murderer he knows from his past due to his honor involving an outstanding financial debt to the criminal. Once a newspaper offers a reward, after being mocked by the criminal, the detective arrests the criminal and collects the reward to repay the debt.

3: “The Last Leaf” (Jean Negulesco). The story is set in Greenwich Village during a pneumonia epidemic. An old artist saves the life of a young artist, dying of pneumonia, by giving her the will to live. She can see an ivy plant through the window gradually losing its leaves, and has taken it into her head that she will die when the last leaf falls.

4: “The Ransom of Red Chief” (Howard Hawks). Two con men kidnap a child in order to collect a substantial ransom, but the child proves to be too much for them.

5: “The Gift of the Magi” (Henry King). On Christmas Eve, with little money, Della sells her hair to buy her husband Jim a watch fob. Jim has sold his watch to buy her a pair of ornamental combs. When they exchange these now useless gifts, they realize how deep is their love for one another.
