Edward Scissor Hands - US Flag in the School

US Flag in Edward Scissor Hands

The US Flag makes a brief cameo in Edward Scissor Hands 1990. This film is a dreamlike confessional allegory by Timothy Burton. The story centers on a man with a heart made from a cookie whose temporary scissor hands became permanent by accident.

He becomes famous in his small town and his gifts are used at the pleasure of the 'bland' community. But tragedy strikes and the origin of snow for this community is explained.

Edwards is a reverse Cinderella trapped in a castle and lives melancholy ever after with his gift.

With hands of sadness glazed with love,
snow falls gently from a castle way above.
