Leave it to you to find something completely different, RJD. Clever idea.
Yes, DVDGUY - Reginald Owen's '38 version was in black and white. As I recall the film was a little "rickety" and that made it seem even a tad older.
Glad you found the one you were looking for Mamma.
Black Adder's Christmas Carol was okay too, but it was slapstick British humour and if you aren't good with accents you'd miss most of the lines.
