A Christmas Carol

It is May 2020- I would like to revisit in Dec. 2020. Then I will be able to be more sincere in my comment. Ok found it to be interesting& enjoyable...but- during the season of Christmas anything is possible. See you then!

Flawless performance by Mr. Lionel Barrymore

It doesn't get much better than this, every character was near flawless. Ebeneezer Scrooge was brilliantly cast by Mr. Lionel Barrymore. And the narration delivered by Mr. Orson Welles was....I can't even think of a good enough word.
