A family tradition!
One of my very fav movies. It is a family tradition to watch this film at Christmas time and that's because my great grandfather (Gene Lockhart) who plays Mr. Crachit, my great grandmother (Kathleen Lockhart) who plays Mrs. Crachit, and my grandmother (June Lockhart) who plays one of the Crachit children are in it. It would be nice to see iTunes add June Lockhart to the cast names on the page. Little known fact, this was my grandmother's FIRST movie role!
The best version
If you're looking for a Christmas carol, this is it with Reginal Owens.
The first version of "A Christmas Carol" Movie...
This was the first movie made about the annual reading of Chrles Dickens Christmas, "A Christmas Carol" with Lionel Barrymore reading the role of Mr. Scrooge. Due to a broken hip, Lionel Barrymore was unavailable to make the first movie and Reginald Owens played an amazing role as the man we all remember as the original Mr. Scrooge. There are many versions, some better than others, but the Cratchit family played by real members of the Lockhart family is by far the best! We all have our own personal favorites, but this is mine. May the peace and love of the season no matter how you choose or choose not to celebrate be upon all of you and have a very Merry Christmas!!!
