Scrooge (1935)

3/5 (1)

“Scrooge” is a 1935 British film directed by Henry Edwards and starring Seymour Hicks as Ebenezer Scrooge. The movie is based on Charles Dickens’ famous novel “A Christmas Carol”.

The story follows the life of the miserly and cold-hearted Ebenezer Scrooge, who despises Christmas and everything associated with it. He runs his business with an iron fist, treating his employees poorly and refusing to donate to charity.

On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, who warns him that he will suffer the same fate unless he changes his ways. Scrooge is then visited by three ghosts: the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come.

Through these visits, Scrooge is shown the errors of his ways, the happiness he has missed out on, and the consequences of his current path. He finally realizes the true meaning of Christmas and becomes a changed man, spreading joy and kindness to those around him.

The film was praised for its faithful adaptation of the novel and Seymour Hicks’ performance as Scrooge. It remains a classic Christmas movie to this day.
