      As it turned out, I was only able to view one version of A Christmas Carol this year. Normally, I see several, but scheduling just didn’t work out, not to mention I didn’t notice this Charles Dickens’ classic being shown all that much. This A Christmas Carol was the one starring Reginald Owen from 1938.

      It wasn’t the first one, but it’s darn close.

      One of the first things I noticed was that one of the ghosts to visit Scrooge was very pretty, and I don’t remember seeing such a pretty ghost before. It turns out that the Ghost of Christmas Past was played by the beautiful Ann Rutherford. She ...


      • really livened things up there during her part of the show.

        I was also intrigued by Gene Lockhart, who played Bob Cratchit. I’ve seen him many times on film, but I never realized (or maybe I just don’t remember) that his daughter is June Lockhart of Lost in Space. June debuted in this A Christmas Carol

        as one of Cratchit’s daughters. Not only that, but his wife Kathleen plays Mrs. Cratchit, so this is truly a family affair.

        This version of A Christmas Carol is a very basic, simple accounting which makes it rather nice. It’s not embellished or turned too much into a soap opera as others are. I enjoyed it.
