Scrooge (1935) Rated NR

Scrooge 1935

Ebenezer Scrooge, gets a visit from his former partner, Marley, who tells him that he will be visited by three ghosts, all on Christmas Eve.  Based on the Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. Starring Seymour Hicks, Donald Calthrop, Robert Cochran

One of the many renditions’ of Dickens’ classic. This one thankful wasn’t long, running 78 minutes by not using a lot of fluff to tell the tale. They start with a voice over portraying Marley. Holding true to the fact that only Scrooge can see Marley. This film isn’t one of the most notable  A Christmas Carol’s but it does hold up and it’s true to Dickens’ story.   Sir Seymour Hicks plays Scrooge to perfection, this wasn’t his first time he portrayed that character. He also played Scrooge in a 1913 short film, which I’m sorry to say I haven’t seen. This is filmed  perfectly back when special effects, lightening and sound all work together to create a different atmosphere. This is a can’t miss A Christmas Carol. It’s worth a watch.
