Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British films....with just a hint of professionalism.
This episode features one of the greatest Christmas movies of all time and a classic performance from the great Alastair Sim
Crotchety Victorian businessman Ebenezer Scrooge (Alastair Sim) has no use for festivity, even at Christmas. After resentfully allowing timid clerk Bob Cratchit (Mervyn Johns) to have the holiday to spend with his loving wife (Hermione Baddeley) and family, Scrooge is swept into a nightmare. The ghost of his late partner, Jacob Marley (Michael Hordern), appears, warning that Ebenezer will be visited by three more spirits who will show the coldhearted man the error of his parsimonious behaviour.lbritanni
