For your enjoyment, SCROOGE in its entirety. God bless us, everyone!

Please pause playlist at bottom of page to hear/watch video.

Of the countless number of Christmas films, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol has always been my favorite. It never fails to entertain and, simultaneously, send the message that each of us can profoundly affect one another's happiness.

Although productions starring Reginald Owen and Alastair Sim are superb, the 1935 British production of SCROOGE (the first sound production of A Christmas Carol) starring Seymour Hicks presents a raw but realistic portrait of the strength of humanity during difficult times.

Enjoy, and wishing you and your loved ones a Blessed and Merry Christmas! xo

I've never seen Scrooge. I don't think I've ever seen it on television.

I've been watching it with my morning cup of tea and really enjoying it. Thanks for sharing Petra! K. :)

Am so glad you're enjoying it, K.! TCM aired the musical version of Scrooge starring Albert Finney. I never saw that one either until then! Have a Merry Christmas, K.! :))
