A Christmas Carol (16-Dec-1938)

Director: Edwin L. Marin

Writer: Hugo Butler

From short story: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Musical Score by: Franz Waxman

Producer: Joseph L. Mankiewicz

Keywords: Drama, Christmas

On Christmas Eve, the miserly Ebeneezer Scrooge is visited by his former business partner Jacob Marley, who warns him to change his ways; Marley reveals that three spirits will visit later that same evening. One of director Edwin L. Marin's better efforts; Reginald Owen replaced Lionel Barrymore at the last minute after the latter's hip injury. Often overshadowed by A Christmas Carol (1951).
