The entire Dickens tale in under eleven minutes, this memorable 1910 version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL has it all. Almost all, that is. Tiny Tim doesn't make the cut but essentially everything else is there. Past, present and future.

Is it possible to present the entire "A Christmas Carol" short story on film (without sound) in only 10 minutes? Yes, and almost every aspect of the traditional tale is covered (except for Tiny Tim). The film condition is surprisingly good considering that the movie was released in 1910. The most unexpected element was special effects. Marley appears no less a ghost than the future versions decades later.

The accelerated pace of the plot actually helps to eliminate the top complaint for most silent films which is slow character development. The acting is a bit over the top, but it is not uncharacteristic for the era.

If you enjoy the numerous renditions of the holiday classic "A Christmas Carol," you really should spend 10 minutes of your time to watch this surprisingly impressive silent film version.

Well preserved print of the holiday classic. Imagine yourself in a theater in the early 1900's seeing this literary classic brought to life on screen. Done beautifully for its time.
