Long-time readers of this blog know that a) I love Christmas and b) there's no Christmas story—in some ways, there's no story for any time of the year—that I love more than Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" and c) my favorite filmed version of that tale is the 1951 classic starring the extraordinary Alastair Sim, in one of the screen's great performances, as Scrooge. So, as we sail our sleds down a snowy hill toward Christmas, I present the movie in full. May your heart be warmed, your soul uplifted, by a story that only grows more relevant with time.
Thanks for sharing. I've always watched the George C. Scott version and didn't think others would be as good. But I just finished watching this one, and wow, Alastair Sim was a great Scrooge!ReplyDelete
He was perfection, wasn't he? That said, I'm very fond of the George C. Scott one, as well.Delete
