Dickensfest 2013

2013 marks the 170th anniversary of the publication of Charles Dickens' classic Christmas tale, A Christmas Carol.

So here at Holiday Film Reviews,  ye olde bloggers have decided to celebrate with another blog-a-thon of Dickensian entertainments over the next week (since A Christmas Carol was first published on the 17th of December 1843.)

As you may recall, we did a Dickensfest blog-a-thon last year.  Here's a listing of our posts from "Chirstmas Past":

A Christmas Carol (1910) 

* Mickey's Christmas Carol

* A Christmas Carol (1984)

* Family Ties:  A Keaton Christmas Carol

* An American Christmas Carol (written by guest blogger Joanna Wilson of

* Scrooged (written by guest blogger Ian Rennie)

* Blackadder's Christmas Carol

* The Six-Million Dollar Man:  A Bionic Christmas Carol 

* Saturday Night Live - Danny Devito (1988) : "Bankrupt Scrooge"

There are so many adaptations that we thought we'd share a few more with all of you this week.  

We might also throw in some examples of productions that use Dickens himself as a character or aren't strictly adaptations of the original story.

We hope you enjoy!
