A Christmas Carol is a American film adaptation of Charles Dickens 's novella of the same name , starring Reginald Owen as Ebenezer Scrooge , an elderly miser who learns the error of his ways on Christmas Eve after visitations by three spirits. On Christmas Eve in 19th-century London, Fred is sliding on ice on a sidewalk. When Fred reveals who he is, the boys take off in terror. Fred soon arrives at the counting-house of his miserly maternal uncle, Ebenezer Scrooge. After declining an invitation from his nephew to dine with him on Christmas, Scrooge rejects two gentlemen collecting money for charity.
Other than Alistair Sim this version with Reginald Owen of Christmas Carol is probably the most well known traditional retelling. You guys know I am pretty open minded when it comes to interpretations of this story. Trailer: Introduction by Lionel Barrymore who was famous for his Scrooge on Broadway and originally offered the part. Scrooge- Reginald Owen is fine as Scrooge. He is kind of like the Scott version, a bit softer than the best versions in my opinion but perfectly fine performance. It takes a long time to get to the spirits. Big difference is Scrooge fires Cratchit because of a snowball fight and his wanting the day off.
