Scrooge -- December 23, 2017
TCM recently showed Scrooge, the 1935 adaption of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."  Seymour Hicks first played Ebenezer Scrooge on stage in 1901.  He appeared in a short film as Scrooge in 1913.  I enjoy this version because it uses a minimum of special effects.  Many of the ghostly scenes are done with shadows and sounds.  Hicks is horrible before and jolly after, but he had a lot of practice.
