THE DEFINITIVE SCROOGE,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Christmas Carol [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Anyone who still doesn't know the story of 'A Christmas Carol' should be boiled in his own pudding. Alastair Sim was the definitive Scrooge and always will be. But look no further. This is the 2-dvd set you have been waiting for. Everything has been restored, and not only does the set include the black and white and colorised versions but also a widescreen version which has been enhanced for widescreen monitors. For good measure, there is the 1935 film with Sir Seymour Hicks, although this copy looks old by comparison.
audio commentary by Marcus Hearn and George Cole,
George Cole remembers Alastair Sim,
Richard Gordon remembers George Minter and Renown Pictures,

I'm a little puzzled. The product description says it consists of one disc yet the review by Mr/Ms Kingswell says: "This is the 2-dvd set you have been waiting for".
I'll buy it in the hope that I at the very least I'll get the original black-and-white version featuring Alastair Sim. The other versions will be a welcome bonus.
I'll post a review when I receive the package.

The product description is incorrect, as is often the case. There are 2 discs, as stated on the dvd cover.

Haven't yet received the package but had I looked more closely I would have seen that there are 2 discs. This will certainly be a welcome addition to my dvd collection. Please accept my apologies for questioning your review.
