The Night Before Christmas
"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.
