Dark Hall Mansion’s yearly holiday tradition continues with the timeless classic that’s informed Christmas and the holiday season for almost 50 years, Charles M. Schulz’s 1965 masterpiece, “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” this year beautifully and evocatively rendered by artist, Nicolas Delort. Flawlessly written by Charles Schulz, beautifully directed and animated by Bill Melendez and team, and of course, brilliantly scored by Vince Guaraldi, this film, perhaps more than any other, quietly, humorously, and evocatively reminds us in poetic and lyrical fashion just what the true meaning of Christmas really is.
Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Peanuts Worldwide, takes us back to our collective memory of gathering about the TV while awaiting Christmas and the holidays and having Guaraldi’s first gentle jazz passages signal the season truly was upon us. Charles M. Schulz’s 1965 masterpiece is timeless, precisely because its profound emotional resonance is as relevant today as it will be in another fifty years and beyond. Artist Nicolas Delort, who brought such pathos to Dark Hall Mansion’s “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” again brings his distinctive and highly detailed style to bear rendering Charlie’s contemplation of the true meaning of Christmas a quiet and personal one.
