A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol was a 1949 low-budget, black and white television special narrated by Vincent Price. Compressing the Charles Dickens classic story into a half hour, it is stated to be "the oldest extant straight adaptation of the story" for television.[1] It was originally produced as a syndicated production for airing on 22 stations across the United States on Christmas Day in 1949. It was sponsored by Magnavox and represented that company's first use of television advertising.[2] In 1952 the show was acquired by Consolidated Television Sales for further syndication.
