Although slightly corn-ball, this 1938 production...should appeal to fans of old-fashioned Hollywood-style filmmaking. Full Review

Product Description:

Though not quite on a par with the same-titled film starring Alistair Sim, this version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL is still a moving version of the classic story. A wealthy miser learns how wonderful and fulfilling life can be with a little generosity at Christmas time from three spectres who visit him the night before Christmas.

Description by Warner Home Video:

Christmas Carol, A
A classic that's as integral a part of Christmas as lighted trees and mistletoe. Reginald Owen and Gene Lockhart star in this rewarding holiday treat.

A Christmas Carol (1938) Movie Lover: from EL CAJON, CA US -- February, 27, 2011

I agree with you about this picture,starring Reginald Owen, however I truly like the same titled movie but the star is Alastair Simms,its was presented in 1951 a true British version. This version should be also given 5 stars.

The PERFECT Christmas Carol Movie Lover: from San Francisco -- January, 10, 2010

This is truly the quintesential version of this timeless classic! Reginald Owen is far and away the best Scrooge! The complete feel of the movie is so "period" and it's truly a MUST HAVE for anyone's holiay movie collection! Plus, you get to see a very young June Lockhart in her first movie role as one of the Cratchett children, with her real-life mother and father playing the roles of Mr. and Mrs. Cratchett! It's a perfect holiday addition!! ENJOY!!
