Join movie fan and host Lynne Warfel for a Humbug Festival on Hollywood Holiday: The Ebenezer Edition. Lynne features some of the best loved interpretations of the old miser with scores that are pure gold.

Included in the show: the 1938 Franz Waxman's A Christmas Carol with Reginald Owen and June Lockhart in her uncredited film debut playing a Cratchit kid (instead of Lost in Space and Timmy's Mom). Alastair Sim's offbeat Ebenezer with music by Richard Addinsell, to The Muppets, Scrooge the Musical and the latest version form Disney studios with Jim Carrey playing three Ebenezers and three ghosts to an Alan Silvestri score.
