Early Film Adaptations of “A Christmas Carol”

Scrooge, or, Marley’s Ghost is a five-minute film produced in 1901; it s considered the first filmed version of Dickens’ tale. It features Scrooge confronting Marley as well as the visions of Christmas past, present, and future.  Additional information is provided by the British Film Institute.

Another early representation is a 1910 production for the Edison studios. See how much more sophisticated the “effects” are in this feature.
