Old Grey Whistlefest

Over at the BFI website you can see an item about a 1956 adaptation of an M.R. James classic. No, not the Miller one with Michael Hordern, the amateur one that's just been brought to light. It's rather nice and of course quite seasonal in its way.

There's even a sheet with an actual face.Not bad for post-war enthusiasts on a zero budget.

There's a link in the article that takes you to the 1956 film, which is free to watch and lasts 10 mins.
