    Olga Edwardes was like the rest of the wonderful supporting cast in this film, she seemed to inhabit her short part in the film, and when she forgives Scrooge for his past behavior, it's a wonderfully sympathetic scene. Olga went on to marry Nicholas Davenport, to become Olga Edwardes Davenport, the name she used as she took up painting again, her previous talent. She became a well-regarded Modernist painter, dying in 2008.

    One of my very favorite versions of "A Christmas Carol", is the 1951 production with Alastair Sim. There are many great actors and scenes in this movie that bring the Charles Dickens' novel to life. I am especially impressed with the actress, Olga Edwardes, who portrayed Fred's wife (Scrooge's niece by marriage). She was beautiful and sent an air of kindness and sincerity when she spoke. Although she only had a very short scene in the movie, her presence and contribution left a lasting and warm impression on me, that I shall always remember. I wish there were more information and photos about this lovely actress.

    Olga Edwardes is enchaning in the 1951 Alastair Sim version of Dicken's "Chirstmas Carol." Although she only apprears in two brief scenes, she shines in both. One of my favorite moments is when Sim (Scrooge) goes to his nephew's (Fred) house and apologizes to Fred's wife (Olga Edwardes). Watch it from the time he enters the front door and enjoy the wonderful job the maid does before he enters the main room. The hauntingly beautiful Scottish ballad "Babara Allen" which is woven throughout the movie, is being sung during this part of the scene. Then watch the radiant Ms. Edwardes light up the screen in the brief moments she has the stage. What a wonderful, poignant, magical scene it is. I have tried to find information about Ms. Edwardes, but there is none beyond date and location of her birth (1917 Johannesburg, South Africa) and the five or six movies she was in. It saddens me to see there is so little information about such a radiant actress. If I find more, I will post the information. But you can enjoy her wonderful performance in one of the finest movies ever made. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
