Holiday Film Spotlight: How The Grinch Stole Christmas! (1966)
The holiday season is never complete without a viewing of the classic 1966 animated short film ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas!’ from the beloved story by Dr. Seuss. At only 26 minutes in length, this holiday treat has delighted generations for 45 years and shows no sign of slowing down. While Jim Carrey starred in the big-budget live-action remake, this timeless gift starred legendary horror icon Boris Karloff (‘Frankenstein’) as both the Narrator and the titular character.
The green, Christmas-hating monster, the Grinch, lives in the snowy hills above Who-ville and dreads Christmas time every year, but this year he has a plan. A plan so devious, so evil, that it cannot fail. He will, with all his might, stop the celebration once and for all without so much as a fight. But, will the overpowering of love and togetherness from the Whos give the Grinch a change of heart? Only if his heart wasn’t so small, perhaps.
