What the Dickens?
It's no surprise that writers revise. Goodness knows I sure do plenty of that (Exhibit A, pictured here). Compare and contrast Charles Dickens' original manuscript of A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Wonder what he would have done with colored ink?
What's your favorite film version of this story? I personally like the classic with Alistair Sim, although those two little kids under the robe of the Ghost of Christmas Present give me the willies. But then, they're supposed to.
Daughter likes the Muppet version.
I won't be seeing the newest one. It looks too weird to me.
And hey, that story was a hit even before the current paranormal craze!
