A Christmas Carol (MGM 1938)

MGM pictures have always been a bit saccharine.  It was Louis B. Mayer's intention to make "feel good" movies for the public to take them away from the problems in the everyday world.  Their 1938 production of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" is no different.  Starring Sir Reginald Owen and Gene Lockhart, this film is a sort of compact, Christmas card version of the famed story.  But, it is fun to watch and has plenty of Christmas spirit.

Here is an MGM promo featuring Lionel Barrymore for your viewing pleasure.
