The Grinch 

There are many amazing movies for Christmas this season each week I will pick one movie to wright about. Such as the The Grinch.In the original book for the grinch, the grinch was actually black and white with ugly red eyes. We all know the grinch for his ugly smile but it wasn’t till Chuck Jones, the animator and director of the grinch animation, who used his own smile for the. Mean grinch. How the Grinch Stole Christmas! marks the first time Dr. Seuss centered a story on a villain who changes his ways. Prior to 1957, his previous books included Horton Hears a Who!.The lyrics for “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” were written by Seuss with Chuck Jones. The song, which describes the Grinch as a sinister and unhygienic animal was basically an old-fashioned diss battle between the two friends. Many actor were considers for the part of the grinch both Eddie Murphyand Jack Nicholson.Not since 1939’s The Wizard of Oz have so many characters in a film, including all extras, worn such heavy stage makeup. It took Jim Carrey three hours daily to get into his Grinch suit, which was made of individually dyed green yak hairs.Thurl Ravenscroft, who sings the theme song of the short, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” was also the voice of Frosted Flakes cereal mascot Tony the Tiger for more than 50 years, from 1951 until his death in 2005.
