SCROOGE (1935)

Starring: Seymour Hicks
Director: Henry Edwards

This little-known British version of Charles Dickens's classic A Christmas Carol is faithful to the original story and boasts a standout performance by Seymour Hicks, who also cowrote the screenplay. A truly enjoyable film, unjustly overshadowed by Alastair Sim's bravura performance as Scrooge in the venerated 1951 version. (78 mins.)

My Rating: **1/2
