SCROOGE starring Seymour Hicks, Leedham Bantock and William Lugg. Seymour (later "Sir Seymour") Hicks made a career of portraying Ebenezer Scrooge, possibly Dickens' most memorable character, in "A Christmas Carol". He made the first sound film version of the story in 1935 but, twenty-two years earlier, he made this nearly forgotten silent version. Compact and utilizing some primitive but effective special effects, this is a fascinating presentation of the enduring, classic tale.
THE STORY OF SANTA CLAUS Produced by Cine Art Productions for the home movie market in the mid 1920s. Loosely based upon Clement Clarke Moore's "The Night Before Christmas", this delightful little film features scenes of Santa at the North Pole and his journey (through clever animation) to deliver gifts to the good children. He visits one family where dad lends a helping hand. Presented with its original color tints, "The Story of Santa Claus" is enchanting.
THE TOY SHOP Starring Virginia Marshall and Josef Swickard. Directed by Martin Justice. On Christmas Eve in a French village, a little beggar girl, abused by passers-by, is taken in and cared for by the kindly toy maker. Finally safe and warm, she dreams of adorable dancing dolls and toy soldiers. She awakens to a sumptuous Christmas dinner! Presented in its original two-color Technicolor process with the original score.
Original music scores composed and performed by John Mucci!

Should always be told and seem in this version.
We have gotten far away with this one to many modern ones today.
There's NO mention in the modern ones of being THANKFUL and a CHANGED heart.
And instead of seeing a departed one we see no one which only the one see's it.
Which is more to real life then the ones we have today.
Would I tell some one to buy it. I believe a person must see it before buying.
Thank you for sharing.
For example, it omitted the people who ask Scrooge for a donation tot he poor, and instead we see Scrooge in a Restaurant to eat where the Lord Mayor happens to be and so does the Queen, and they sing God Save the Queen. Mind you, I love God Save the Queen, but its not necessary for “A Christmas Carol” and could be cut to make room for the Solicitors of Donations, more important tot he stories central theme.
It's that sort of change (without giving away too many spoilers) that I mainly objected to. This version was short so I expected some omissions, but still...
All I can say, I suppose, is...
