This DVD "A Charles Dickens Christmas" contains two excellent and classic telling of Dicken's famous story:
SCROOGE 1935 (61 minutes) B&W Starring Sir Seymour Hicks, Donald Calthrop
This wonderful British screen adaptation of A CHRISTMAS CAROL remains the most faithful to the classic Charles Dickens novella. Rarely has fog-shrouded 19th century London been presented this well. Hicks' realistic performance as Ebenezer Scrooge is widely regarded as the finest portrayal of this legendary miser.
A CHRISTMAS CAROL 1949 (25 minutes) B&W Starring Vincent Price, Taylor Holmes, Pat White
Welcome to a gentler side of Vincent Price, renown as the Hero of Horror. Here, Vincent plays host to a telling of one of the most beloved Christmas stories of all time. Actor Taylor Holmes stars as Ebenezer Scrooge, the miser's miser who has a huge change of heart after spirits whisk him into the past,present,and future.
