ANOTHER VERSION OF DICKENS’ CLASSIC

Front Standard. A Christmas Carol [Blu-ray] [1951].

Bosley Crowther of The New York Times posted a favorable notice,
writing that producer Brian Desmond Hurst “has not only hewed to
the line of Dickens’ classic fable of a spiritual regeneration on
Christmas Eve, but he has got some arresting recreations of the
story’s familiar characters,” adding, “The visions of Scrooge’s life
story are glimpses into depressing realms, and the aspects of
poverty and ignorance in 19th century England are made plain.

NOTE: THIS IS A GREAT FILM AS WELL! BLOGGER BOB
