A Christmas Carol (Scrooge)

Review By John C.

A Christmas Carol starring Alastair Sim, is arguably the best adaptation of Charles Dickens’ masterpiece ever put to screen. It stays close to the book, and 57 years later, it is still being watched. There are so many different versions of the story, some good and some not, and next year a new version is coming, (more on that later), but the best ones are the one from 1938 with Reginald Owen, this one from 1951, and, yes, the Muppets. A Christmas tradition every year, based on one of the best Christmas stories ever written, go out and watch this movie.
