The 1935 film Scrooge is the classic story of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Starring Seymour Hicks as Ebenezer Scrooge, the story centers on Scrooge as he discovers the true joy of Christmas. After the ghost of Scrooge's former partner, Jacob Marley, visits him in the night and warns him that his time is quickly ending, Scrooge is then visited in the night by three ghosts (the ghost of Christmas past, Christmas present, and Christmas future). Scrooge then understands that he has spent his life living in contempt of the holiday. His realization encourages him to turn his life around and celebrate the holiday with his favorite employee Bob Cratchitt (Donald Calthrop). As this was the first film version of the classic story, it remains to this day one of the most popular. Directed by Henry Edwards, Scrooge also stars Robert Cochran, Mary Glynne, Garry Marsh, Oscar Asche, Marie Ney, and C.V. France and Philip Frost as Tiny Tim.
