He wakes moments before the arrival of the Ghost of Christmas Past, a strange childlike phantom with a brightly glowing head. The spirit escorts Scrooge on a journey into the past to previous Christmases from the curmudgeon's earlier years. Invisible to those he watches, Scrooge revisits his childhood school days, his apprenticeship with a jolly merchant named Fezziwig, and his engagement to Belle, a woman who leaves Scrooge because his lust for money eclipses his ability to love another. Scrooge, deeply moved, sheds tears of regret before the phantom returns him to his bed. (5 years and 1872 days ago)
When I was just a kid, Hollywood came to town to film "An American Christmas Carol" starring Henry Winkler (the Fonz!).
This is the Victorian look street that was used - ironically in Canada. I would have needed a crane to duplicate the scene in the SBS photo but tryed to portray that scene today. Whenever I think of a Christmas Carol, I remember the excitement of the filming :) (5 years and 1873 days ago)
