An little known christmas gem,
This review is from: A Christmas Carol [DVD]  (DVD)
For anyone, like me, sick to death of the various americanised remakes - from the muppets to scrooged - this one will come as a breath of fresh air.
A genuinely moving retelling of the original story which also manages to remain thoroughly festive from start to finish.
The magic of this film owes much to the superb performances of not only George C Scott in the lead role, but also that of the excellent supporting British cast (Incidentally, George manages an admirable job of shaking his American accent).
This remains my all time favourite version of this classic christmas tale. If you only ever own one version of A Christmas Carol, make it this one.

I completely agree with this review. It is quite a shame that this exceptionally fine version of "A Christmas Carol" is so little known. Personally I find this version very moving and extremely well-done. George C. Scott is remarkable and, surprisingly, very fitting for the role. Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy this rendition of Dicken's masterpiece; you won't regret it!

Totally agree that this is the best version. I was lucky enough to see it at the cinema.
