Gentle Friends last night I began my annual "Scrooge-a-thon" or as it has come to be know in my little brain..... "Scrooge-a-palooza!"
I hauled out all the version I had of "A Christmas Carol" and started in on the oldest... "Scrooge" - 1935 starring Sir Seymour Hicks as Ebenezer scrooge. This film made in England at the beginning of the sound era is a bit creaky in places but it is still a charming little sugar plum of the season!!
After this ACC was over I flipped on regular TV over to AMC to catch another classic Christmas film "Miracle on 34th Street" - 1947 -
Now, I love this film, but they were showing the "colorized" version which is just beyond the pale.... so after a few minutes of my eyes burning in protest... I flipped back to the DVD player and popped in my "correct" Black and White version and watched that instead - and thoroughly enjoyed it!!!
Tonight I'll be watching - the 1938 "A Christmas Carol" and probably one of the two best versions of ACC ever put on film - the 1951 "Scrooge."
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
