Christmas elicits nothing more than "bah, humbug!" from Ebenezer Scrooge (George Scott), a miser whose sole pursuit of financial success has left him a bitter and lonely old man. But a Christmas Eve visit from the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future ultimately teaches him to open his heart to the spirit of Christmas and to the joys of friends and family.

    I love this version of A Christmas Carol. Mr. George C. Scott is incredible in this role. A must buy.
  • great movie

    By Jessebo8247
    the movie is a 5 star movie, but the fact that it's in a 4:3 aspect ratio is disappointing. this movie deserves a 16:9 aspect ratio.

  • Best Christmas movie ever

    By Khfdyjhsdgvgj
    I thin this is one of the best movies ever
  • A Classic done very well indeed

    By Thee Truth Seeker
    A once a year event at our house that predates me. George C Scott gives an excellent performance as does Edward Woodward and others. Since we started watching this version in the late eighties (it was released in '84) I can't go back and watch the Alastair Sim rendition.
  • Holiday classic

    By Warlock Scout
    It has been a toss up as to which version is the best for me. I find that I enjoy both the George C. Scott version of the story and the Patrick Stewart version.
  • A family classic

    By W88S
    Our kids grew up watching this every Christmas and it became a holiday tradition. As they grew older they didn't want to watch it anymore. Predictable reaction. Now that they are in their late twenties they want to see it again and the family tradition is alive and well. And the movie is such a classic.
  • Favorite Adaptation

    George C. Scott is fantastic as Scrooge, the casting overall is excellent, the settings, costumes, music all combine to paint a quintessential holiday picture. If you haven't seen this one, give it a chance!
