The Night Before Christmas1905

  • 3.9
"A Visit from St. Nicholas," the memorable holiday poem by Clement Clarke Moore, is adapted for the screen by longtime Edison Manufacturing Company director Edwin S. Porter. "'Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro' the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." Though, in this version, we don't begin there. We start with the man-in-the-red-suit feeding his reindeer. They'll need it for the long night ahead.

would not show entire film, only first 40 ish seconds, then loop back to beginning.

My wife (not a fan of silent film) and I greatly enjoyed this. Not only a fine telling of the story, but great use of props and film techniques. We hope to watch it again next holiday season.

Well done, especially for 1905, ahead of its time!!

For one of the earliest film versions, it was wonderful

Pretty cool ~
