How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1966)

by Goat November 25, 2014

The original How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a charming little short animation that was written by Dr. Seuss and narrated by the late great Boris Karloff.  The absolutely fabulous Grinch Song is not sung by Boris Karloff, but actually credited to Thurl Ravenscroft of Tony the Tiger Frosted Flakes, (they’re GREAT!!) fame.

Nolan’s film, along with it’s attendant monologues and over-hammering of themes, reminds me of the science fiction of Orson Scott Card, at least from the era before Card degenerated completely into a homophobic Mormon crank. There may not be subtlety, but there is beauty and imagination at work.

Full disclosure: Christopher Nolan is my favorite director. I’m the kind of fan who has to see his films on opening day, at the earliest possible showing, like a huge nerd. I also obsessively check his imdb.com profile to see what projects he’s working on. But don’t worry – I won’t let my fangirl tendencies […]
