How The Grinch Stole Christmas

This review is of the 1966 animated version of the story, not the deplorable live action piece of crap starring Jim Carrey. 
     This animated short is delightful. Then again how can you go wrong? The Arthur is Dr. Seuss and one of the directors is Chuck Jones. (Ben Washam is the other.)
     Chuck Jones is famous directing the Tom and Jerry series so right there you have an instant hit. Boris Karloff is the narrator and gives this short life. 
     My sister is showing this film to my Godson as we speak, so naturally I had to review it. Where can you go wrong with such a fine list of talented men listed above? 
The story is a gem and should be shown EVERY YEAR on my birthday, which is of course Christmas eve. 

                                                                                                                                                                             GRADE G (for Grinch)

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
