How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Boris Karloff, best known for his 1931 portrayal of Frankenstein, narrated and provided the voice in the 1966 version of Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas. But the classic solo of You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch (and all other musical numbers attributed to the Grinch) were performed by Thurl Ravenscroft, the same voice who gives Tony the Tiger his Grrrreeeeaat! sound. Ravenscroft was overlooked when the credits for the movie were added, causing concern for Theodor Geisel, who made a personal attempt to publicly note the error.
