Reviews

A musical version of Dickens' famous novel. Miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (Albert Finney) is so mean-spirited that he resents giving his clerk Bob Cratchit (David Collings) the day off for Christmas. At night, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his late partner Jacob Marley (Alec Guinness), who warns him that three spirits will visit him in an attempt to save his soul.

Apart from the missing Overture - the transfer is no different from the DVD version, except of course you get the greater clarity and brighter colours expected of HD. Fortunately - unlike some other older film releases, grain isn't a real problem here. Yes of course it's a shame it's still a bare-boned edition with even the Overture removed this time around - It would've been 4 Stars for that reason if I didn't enjoy the movie so much. . OK - it's doesn't need to be in the film itself, but I agree with one reviewer in saying that an optional extra would've been nice. Also nice might've been tracking down Albert Finney and a few other surviving cast or crew members for a Commentary. Personally I think Albert Finney did a wonderful job, so recollections would've been an excellent Blu-ray addition. As a footnote, I recently saw Disney's 'A Christmas Carol.' Yes it did an amiable job in terms of 3D and CGI animation, but in terms of capturing the sheer emotion and pay-off of an old miser making good, this musical version of Scrooge I think can't be beaten. I've also read the novel, and this movie actually does improve and enhance what Dickens wrote in my opinion. So, if you've always enjoyed the film, then do please put it in your Xmas stockin. With it's much richer and detailed picture, I guarantee it'll still touch the heart amd all the right emotions just in time for Christmas.

This is, as other reviewers have mentioned, the greatest Christmas film ever and it looks beautiful on Blu Ray.

A really wonderful rendition of the well known story, it really is a treat that the whole family will enjoy. The story itself really benefits from the songs which are all catchy, some fun, some sad, some romantic, but all wonderful. They are only songs - this is not one of those musicals where every line is sung; there is plenty of standard dialogue between the numbers.

A great British cast led superbly by Albert Finney with a nice turn from Alec Guinness.

My family are not massive musical fans but we absolutely adore this movie and it has become something of a Christmas tradition to watch it which we all look forward to.

If you have never seen this film I really do envy you - it is such a delight to discover for the first time.

I absolutely love this film. I'm not a big fan of musicals but this is without doubt the best Scrooge film ever made. Albert Finney and the supporting cast are superb.
I watch this on and off throughout the year, as far as I'm concerned it doesn't have to be Christmas to enjoy this film. I've only just realised that it was out on Blu-ray but as soon as I did it was ordered and for £7.49 it's unbeatable value, buy it!

Fantastic Christmas film. Bought this as my original BD was lost in a move of house. It never fails to deliver each Christmas - gives you that lovely warm feeling ("The chancellor's cat is an angry cat!"...). Superb cast who know how to act, super photography, good sharp picture on this blu ray, and beautifully directed. A great British production from the beginning of the 70s. Albert Finney plays the title character as if he was born for it - pity he seems so reclusive as it'd be good to see him around more. The Amazon price was a steal, so full marks all round.

Classic fun movie that no Christmas should be without. Hands down the best version of this story. Average Blu Ray transfer, with no extras. By the numbers release.
