The Gift of the Magi Panels

Storyboard Text

  • Della is crying as she only has 1 dollar and 87 cents and to buy a gift for her husband, Jim. This shows that she doesn't have a lot of money.
  • "What do I get Jim with only 1 dollar and 87 cents?"
  • Mne. Sofronie. Hair Goods of All Kinds.
  • “Will you buy my hair?”
  • Della decided to sell her hair to be able to buy Jim a present. This shows how much she doesn't want to let down Jim by not getting him a gift.
  • After selling her hair, Della prays that Jim will accept what she has done with her hair.
  • “If Jim doesn’t kill me...”
  • “PleaseGod, make him think I am still pretty.”
  • After Jim has arrived home, he stares at Della, signalling his confusion and reaction to what his wife has done. On the other hand, Della wishes that Jim's impression of her will stay.
  • “My hair grows so fast, Jim!”
  • Jim had bought Della a comb that Della had craved. She immediately jumped up, showing how much she fancied the combs.
  • Della had bought a new case for Jim's pocket watch. She had put in a lot of effort to find the right present for her husband. But little did she know that Jim had sold his watch to buy her the combs.
  • “Isn’t it a dandy, Jim? I hunted all over town to find it. You’ll have tolook at the time a hundred times a day now. Give me your watch. I wantto see how it looks on it.”
