Alastair Sim’s tour-de-force performance as the ultimate miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, has almost single-handedly made this beloved version of Charles Dickens’ story into one of the best-loved Christmas films of all time. Some of Britain’s best filmmakers united behind Sim, who was joined by a delightful cast of accomplished and acclaimed English actors; creating what many today believe to be the best and most faithful production of Dickens’ immortal tale.  

Cranky and curmudgeonly Scrooge learns the error of his unkind ways and is taught the true meaning of the holidays when he is visited by the ghost of his late business partner and the spirits of Christmas past, present and future. Released in 1951 by United Artists.

 

REVIEWS:

"4 STARS! Superb film is too good to be shown only at Christmastime..." -- Leonard Maltin

"...my real Christmas ritual is "A Christmas Carol," the 1951 version starring Alastair Sim. It wouldn't be Christmas Eve without it. ...this is not just one of the best Christmas movies but one of the best movies ever made." -- Rick Marin, The New York Times

"There have been at least eight movie versions (of A Christmas Carol)... but the single enduring version is the 1951 film starring Alastair Sim as Ebenezer Scrooge...an incomparable Christmas present." -- Gene Shalit
