My favorite version of a classic story that's been put to film numerous times. George C Scott, as usual, gives an exceptional performance as Ebenezer Scrooge.

I saw the BluRay version on the shelf & had to try it, already owning the DVD format, and bought the BluRay version as soon as I had seen this.

A movie I pull out every Christmas, and sometimes in between. Very accurate portrayal of the story as written by Charles Dickens. An exceptional performance by the entire cast and an exception production all around. This one gets an A+ from me.

The George C Scott version, excellent, and rather true to Dickens.

George C. Scott does an interesting, and very good, job of making Scrooge appear real and reasonable. Ultimately, though, this still can't match the Sims version. The reformation is still too abrupt, and there is a lot of the book that is left out.

My favourite is the 1951 version.
