Storyline

A short made by MGM to promote its release of A Christmas Carol (1938). Actor Lionel Barrymore traditionally read the 'Charles Dickens (I)' novel in a radio broadcast every Christmas; he didn't do it in 1938 so as not to conflict with the release of MGM's film. Instead, he made this short to discuss the novel--and the upcoming film--with the audience that would normally listen to his broadcast. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com
