About this item
A collection of nine enchanting silent films, "A Christmas Past" offers a nostalgic peek into the Yuletide pleasures of the early 1900s. Evoking the Victorian charm of Currier and Ives prints, these picturesque comedies and tender dramas were produced as cinematic Christmas cards offered to moviegoers of the silent era. Included in this collection of archival rarities, most of which were produced at Thomas Edison's studios, are the 1910 version of Dicken's immortal "A Christmas Carol", a heartwarming melodrama by D.W. Griffith ("A Trap For Santa"), as well as the first screen version of Clement Moore's 1822 poem "Twas the Night Before Christmas." The films have been digitally mastered from original 35mm elements and are accompanied by a wistful new score by Al Kryszak - performed on a variety of instruments including harp, violin and Christmas handbells - which beautifully enhances the delicate shadings of each of these rare and fascinating treasures. Films Include: "A Holiday Pageant At Home" (1901); "A Winter Straw Ride" (1906); "A Trap For Santa" (1909); "A Christmas Accident" (1912); "The Adventure Of The Wrong Santa Claus" (1914); "Santa Claus Vs. Cupid" (1915); "Santa Claus" (1925); "A Christmas Carol" (1910); "The Night Before Christmas" (1905).
