A CHRISTMAS CAROL
December 19, 2013  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 1:00 a.m. ET

 

Part of TCM’s all-night salute to A Christmas Carol, this late-night offering is one of the earliest. Released in 1938, it stars Reginald Owen as Ebenezer, and certainly goes for a darker approach whenever a spirit visits the old miser. Watch, in particular for Marley’s ghost, because he’s played by a young Leo G. Carroll – who, later in his career, would revisit the concept of spirit visitations as the haunted hero of TV’s Topper.
