Description

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.

  • The BEST version

    This is my favorite for two reasons. The first is George C Scott's AMAZING performance as Scrooge. He really epitomizes the role in a way that I feel other actors have not. The supporting cast is also good, but let's face it, we're here for Scrooge. The second is nostalgia. I was in 6th grade, and the teacher was trying to show us this video. Sadly, my classmates were total brats, and misbehaved. Meanwhile, all I wanted to do was watch the movie. My teacher, who liked how well-behaved I was lent the video to my mom and I over the weekend so I could watch the rest. And I enjoyed it so much I watched it twice! Everytime I see this on cable, I sit down and watch, and now that I've found it on iTunes, I'm buying it. That way, I never have to be without this gem of a Christmas movie, and gem of a performance again!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!
