In 1951, veteran actor Alistair Sim (1900-76) starred in this black-and-white screen adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic book, A Christmas Carol. In 2002, Vci Home Video took recently discovered 35-mm original negatives, and digitally remastered them. This DVD contains both a black-and-white version (as it would have looked back in 1951!), and a colorized version, for those who prefer things in color. Also included is an old 1944 Max Fleisher cartoon of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and a nice introduction by Patrick McNee (who appeared in the movie as a young Jacob Marley).
This is a great movie, with great acting, and a very well produced production, and it's already one of my family's favorites. When you add to that the B&W/Color choice, this DVD became a must-buy for us! Overall, I found this to be a great DVD, one that is well worth the cost. My family and I all highly recommend this DVD to you and yours!
