I received an answer to my last question about an old 1960’s movie called Quartermas and the Pit. I did not even know the name of the movie, but within fifteen minutes, I had the answer. Now I have another question about a movie that I know the name of: A Christmas Carol.
I remember watching this classic as a child on a 19 inch B&W tube TV when I was a child. It was the traditional Dickens Christmas Carol. I do not know if it was in color or black and white. What I do remember are two things: First, the Ghost of Christmas past was a woman, and she seemed to trifurcate into three images and then merge back into one. She was very Ghostlike, and she held a stalk of wheat. Second, this version had a scene from the book that most movies leave out… that is the Ghost of Christmas Present opened his robes and there were two very ghost like emaciated children, a boy and a girl, and the ghost told Scrooge that they were his children, their names were Ignorance and Want, and the Ghost also told Scrooge to “beware them both, but especially beware of Ignorance”
I have looked all over for this movie, can’t seem to find it. It might have been made for TV, but again, I think it might have predated TV, but like the last movie I asked about I do not know. I was very young, and the Ghost of Christmas present scared the crap out of me.
