A Little Christmas Ham

Posted by Dirck on 18 December, 2020

I will warn you at the outset– this presentation of the Dickens classic is… not great. I have no idea what the intended form of presentation was. Early TV? C reel in theatres? No clue. But the acting is… mostly not quite there.

Why am I offering it, then? Two reasons. One is the remarkable interpretation of the Ghost of Christmas Present; he’s generally promoted as a roaring giant (give yourself a treat if you get that reference), but I can’t think of anything else where he’s shown as an angry professional wrestler.

The other– Vincent Price narrates! It’s worth the struggle to listen to him read, and occasionally be shown his warm expressions.

Rest ye merry, folks. We’re almost through to the solstice.
