This video, just posted elsewhere on the net is an 8 minute condensed version of Dicken's immortal "A Christmas Carol," as assembled by my friend Craig Wichman and edited by Jay Stern. I just had to re-share it here:
Seen here as Ebeneezer Scrooge--from various film and television adaptations--are Sir Seymour Hicks, Reginald Owen, Alastair Sim, Basil Rathbone, Frederic March, Mr. Magoo (as voiced by Jim Backus), Albert Finney, Michael Caine, Patrick Stewart and Kelsey Grammer.
I've always loved this sometimes dark, sometimes sad, sometimes spooky holiday tale. And this condensed Christmas Carol is no humbug!
