A Christmas Carol (1938)
On Christmas Eve, an old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the spirit of his former partner, Jacob Marley. The deceased partner was in his lifetime as mean and miserly as Scrooge is now and he warns him to change his ways or face the consequences in the afterlife.
A Christmas Carol opened in December of 1938 at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall.

We bought the premium channels and now are you going to charge us for trying to watch it on tv. What a ripoff all this extra charge for streaming etc. where can we find Scrooge. There were at least 3 made. We do not want muppets or animated,
Who owns these TV channels anti-Americans They want to destroy what America is and not show anything from From the past only woke new shows
Would love to see the Flintstones Christmas cartoons
What is very, very sad is that none of the major TV channels show A Christmas Carol as a Christmas staple anymore, especially the George C. Scott version.
You can watch this version and more on YouTube for free
I’m really disappointed that TCM is not airing Scrooge with Albert Finney. We the whole family look f o rward to seeing it every year. Very sad 😞
I agree. i really look forward to that version every year.
Our family loves this version of Christmas Carol. TCM, please bring it back.
