Product Overview

Focus on scrooge's life story, beautifully simplifying and underscoring the theme of lost women with a haunting musical refrain from the folk song barbara allen. Sim's commitment to the role is at times astonishing his scrooge's christmas-morning ecstasy is a marvel of giddy technique.

Alastair Sim's tour-de-force performance as the ultimate miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, has almost single-handedly made this beloved version of Charles Dickens' story into one of the best-loved Christmas films of all time. Some of Britain's best filmmakers united behind Sim, who was joined by a delightful cast of accomplished and acclaimed English actors; creating what many today believe to be the best and most faithful production of Dickens' immortal tale. Cranky and curmudgeonly Scrooge learns the error of his unkind ways and is taught the true meaning of the holidays when he is visited by the ghost of his late business partner and the spirits of Christmas past, present and future.

Quotes
Ed Hulse, Video Review By far the most entertaining of all the movie versions.
Entertainment Weekly ...not only the gold standard against which all other holiday films should be measured, but also one of the greatest films ever made, period.
Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide Superb film is too good to be shown only at Christmastime...[a] faithful, heartwarming rendition of the Dickens classic.
