“I Was a Boy Here!” | Fredric March (1954)

Last year, we noted that the Spirit of Christmas Past resembles someone specific from Scrooge's past, but we didn't have enough information to know who that was yet. Likely guesses were either Fan or the woman whom Scrooge was once engaged to.

This year, we can deduce that it's his fiancée, because when the Spirit leads Scrooge out of his window and into another room, she skips Scrooge's boyhood and school entirely. I'm guessing we'll get no mention of Fan at all.

So, what is that? Three or four versions that have just omitted the scene so far?

That sounds right which might be a new record. Some versions also omitted the charitable solicitors scene, but I don't remember this many.
