i HAVE LOVED THIS FILM SINCE I SAW IT ON TV MANY YEARS AGO. AS AN ACTOR I THINK ALASTAIR SIM IS BRILLIANT! I WILL WATCH ANY FILM HE IS IN! I WATCH "SCROOGE" ANY TIME OF YEAR - NOT JUST CHRISTMAS! I FIND IT VERY ENTERTAINING AND TOTALLY BELIEVABLE. ITS THE SORT OF FILM I CAN "LOSE" MYSELF IN. I JUST LOVE IT!

Even though this is a decent adaptation of the Dickens novel it doesn't come close to the Seymour Hicks version. He really portrayed the character of Scrooge as the miserable, tightfisted, old miser he was described as in the book. This is still an entertaining film to watch and good acting from the cast.

This is simply the best Christmas film possible, if they ever make a film that defeats this one I will eat my hat, the acting , the emotional feeling, the sadness and joy that causes one to be sucked into this film is wonderful , backed up by the great one and only ALASTAIR SIM who could ask for more.,

It's the original b&w movie. Bought it because my other version was worn out! A lesson to all folk whether it's Christmas or not!Try to watch it every year with my son and any other kids who are interested.Sim is simply brilliant and the support cast are top drawer 'English" actors of the old school!

I was delighted with the quality of the DVD, despite the negative comments that others had written. The colouring was subtle and added to my enjoyment of the film. I have a copy of the original B&W version but I shall always watch this one in future. Service as usual was prompt and efficeint.

This version of the classic film, in full but not overwhelming colour, is a great improvement on the original monochrome. But it has to be said that the threatening ghostly scenes were more frightening in black and white - the colour softensand warms the images slightly! Well worth buying

By far, my favorite version. But then, it's the one I grew up with. Wonderfully sentimental--just what you'd expect at Christmas. I still laugh and cry at the same points, year after year. Alistair Sim overplays his role to everyone's great delight. And his transformation is a joy.

this is the best by far, i seen various scrooge films, but allways watch this one a few times, so decided instead of waiting for next christmas i would perchase the film and watch it when i want to, the film was in perfect condition and reasonably priced thanks.

This must be the original in the genre of redemption of a lost soul, scripted by a master and faithfully reproduced in this magnificent film. It has subsequently been imitated several times but never bettered. They're all muppets compared with this.

Reminded me of Christmas as a kid when there were only 3 channels of TV. this was on every year, often on Christmas Eve. i have French friends who have never heard of this or White Christmas so i bought these as part of a cultural exchange!
