A Christmas Treat -- the 1910 Silent version of A Christmas Carol

Rumor has it that there are more than 200 filmed variations of Charles Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol." This may be the earliest one, at least surviving. It's the Thomas Alva Edison's 1910 film version of "A Christmas Carol," starring Marc McDermott as Ebenezer Scrooge. Take a break, enjoy it, it's less than 11 minutes long, and later watch a better version starring Alastair Sim or George C. Scott, etc. But enjoy this curio.
