A brief telling of a classic story.
24 October 2011 | by (Nottingham, UK) – See all my reviews

If you've seen the other silent versions of A Christmas Carol, this probably feels very familiar. Naturally, in 25 minutes, the story is skated through pretty quick, with large chunks of it completely omitted. But all the ghosts are at least present, and realised quite well, with Russell Thorndike making a suitably grumpy titular character, although the beard is more Father Christmas than Scrooge. One thing that amazes me is how similar Scrooge's chamber looks in all these films - maybe they "recycled" the old set.

In summary then, this version is far from the definitely adaption, but at least it still exists in it's entirely - which is a blessing - and at less than half an hour, it's hardly taxing to sit through.
