Product Description:

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.

Rating 5.0 My Holiday Tradition Movie Lover: from Middle Village, NY US -- November, 21, 2008

Without a doubt, this is the best version ever made of Dickens' classic Christams tale. Alastair Sim becomes Scrooge in a way unlike any other actor before or since. Every Christmas season, I find time to snuggle up and watch this great film. To me, Christmas wouldn't be the same without it. Watching Scrooge rejoice on Christmas morning brings a smile to my face and a feeling of the Spirit of Christmas to me heart. Thank you, Alastair Sim (and Chrles Dickens), for brightening my life!
