I discovered last night that every Monday in December Turner Classic Movies (US and Canada) is showing films made from Dickens novels, including the Alastair Sim version of CHRISTMAS CAROL from the 1950s, which is rarely seen.

Last night I saw THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD, for which the screenwriters had to write an ending because it was unfinished at the time Dickens died. It is a handsome, brooding movie from 1935 with spectacular black and white photography and excellent acting. I've never read the book.
