A Christmas Carol (1949)

Vincent Price, Taylor Holmes
Arthur Pierson
Vincent Price narrates this early television version of the Charles Dickens classic. Taylor Holmes (Kiss of Death) stars as Ebenezer Scrooge, the miserly man whose grim outlook is changed when he's visited by ghosts on Christmas eve. Directed and adapted for television by Arthur Pierson (Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, Home Town Story) this stirring drama also stars Patrick Whyte and Queenie Leonard as Mr. and Mrs. Cratchit, while Jill St. John, only nine years old at the time, turns in an adorable cameo as little Missy Cratchit.
