A Christmas Carol (1938)


MGM's 1938 good-spirited adaption of Charles Dicken's "A Christmas Carol". Directed by Edwin L. Marin, starring Reginald Owen as the miser Ebenezer Scrooge, Gene and Kathleen Lockhart as Bob and Mrs. Cratchit, Barry MacKay as Ebenezer's nephew Fred, June Lockhart as one of the Cratchit daughters, Belinda, and Terry Kilburn as Tiny Tim.

On Christmas eve the Ghost of Jacob Marley (Leo G. Carroll), Scrooges once business partner, appears to inform Ebenezer that he is to be visited by three spirits that same night; the Ghost of Christmas Past (Ann Rutherford), Present (Lionel Braham), and Future (D'Arcy Corrigan). That perhaps will make the old man have the change of heart he needs, and live out his days in kindness and joy instead of misery and greed.

It just wouldn't seem like the season til this treasure fit for all is watched!
