'You mean I'm sacked, sir?!'
This version isn't a "good" adaptation, but it's cute, innocuous holiday fare. Yeah, Tiny Tim's laugh cracks glass. But it's not a "bad" movie to come out of Hollywood's so-called Golden Age.
But is it not just a bit peculiar that a grown man with a doting family waiting at home would join a group of troublemaking street boys throwing snowballs to knock the hats off the head of complete strangers on Christmas Eve??
