Synopsis


Scrooge
Starring Seymour Hicks as the title character, Scrooge is a faithful adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens' novel A Christmas Carol about a heartless miser who discovers the true meaning of Christmas when three ghosts visit him on Christmas Eve. Hicks co-wrote the screenplay to this film, which is a thoroughly entertaining and effective retelling of a familiar story ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

    This is the Seymour Hicks version, made in 1935--before the better-known Reginald Owen and Alastair Sim versions. The good news is that for some people (including me), even mediocre colorization is better than stark black-and-white. The bad news is that this is the shortened 63-minute version instead of the 78-minute original. Thus, this is worth a bargain-basement price, but no more than that.

    Am a big Christmas Carol fan over the holidays. Great to watch when not having alot of time to view because the view time is about half of what the other versions are. Shows great contrast between film making in the 1930's to the modern era, and makes it enjoyable.
