A Christmas Carol (1951)

 We are in earnest…no foul language within!

christmas-carol-a-2

We end the year with Charles Dickens’ bittersweet Christmas treat, one of the most adapted stories of all times. Alastair Sim is the highlight of this fever dream of a movie that ventures into outright horror. The last 10 minutes of this 45th Next 100 Project ep also has us discussing our year in podcasting, the year in movies and some of our upcoming projects (the words “tube” and “you” are involved). So buy some Sparkplug Coffee to stuff some stockings, then God bless us yadda yadda for the final time in 2016!
