It's Christmas! Time for the Christmas spirit.
Spotted this post in my BazQux
feed-reader: It's Time to Watch Alastair Sim's Scrooge. Again.
So I downloaded the 1951 B&W (all British cast) film and watched it with my 7 y/o son.
As well as having read Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol
a couple of times as a child, I think I've probably seen all/most of the film and TV versions (though I don't recall the 1935 version). However, no-one seemed to capture Scrooge so perfectly as Alastair Sim
in this 1951 version. Really good supporting cast as well.
