71: Five Completely Different Versions of ‘A Christmas Carol’




This week we put you in the holiday spirit with a special episode dedicated to the story that started it all…A Christmas Carol. Ok, ok…the other story that started it all. Originally published in 1843, A Christmas Carol is considered to have popularized many of our holiday traditions such as family gatherings, using the phrase “Merry Christmas”, and avoiding eye-contact with bell-ringers.

Over the years the story has been adapted numerous times; too many to count. Although some experts estimate there have been as many as four. So this week we each member of Reel Spoilers visits you with a different Ghost of Christmas Carol Past.

It’s Reel Spoilers #71: A Christmas Carol

You’ve been scrooged.

Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Blake Fehl, Joe Buttice, Dan Graney, Kevin Brackett
