THE TREASURE OF ABBOT THOMAS (1974 U.K.) D: LAWRENCE GORDON CLARK W: JOHN BOWEN P: ROSEMARY HILL
Another fine M.R. James adaptation from Clark and the BBC, as A Ghost Story For Christmas, in which a 19th century Reverend and his young Lord accomplice set about cracking a code that leads to the treasure of one Abbot Thomas, a 15th century alchemist burnt at the stake. But something is guarding it. Concise and creepy 30 or so mins. THE ASH TREE followed.
