455. SCROOGE (1935-England). With SIR SEYMOUR HICKS, DONALD CALTHROP, MAURICE EVANS. Co-scripted by HICKS. Based on “A Christmas Carol,” by CHARLES DICKENS. Every child past kinderÂgarten knows Dickens’ beloved Christmas story of Ebenezer Scrooge, the ultimate miser: a businessman whose favorite phrase is “Bah, humbug!” One Christmas Eve, Scrooge is persuaded to alter his lifestyle, and the manner in which he treats those around him. This, of course, results from the old boy’s visit by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. In this atmospheric adaptation of the story, Sir Seymour Hicks, the noted British stage actor and writer, plays Scrooge to the hilt This should be no surprise, as he originally acted the role on screen in a silent version way back in 1913. Hicks is best remembered for his theater works if his performance here is any indication, itÕs a shame that his screen roles were relatively infrequent. In any case, this film will make ideal holiday viewing for the entire family. 61 minutes. Drama
