      1. Alister Sim as Scrooge is one of the most moving, touching films of all time! I have watched it every year for as long as I can remember ….. 60 years …… and I still cry every time. It’s black and white adding to the power of the heart rendering movie! Hard nosed, heartless folk might be transformed if the movie was more prominently shown preferably without out commercial interruption.

    1. Absolutely correct ! Best “Scrooge” movie ever ! I was born the same year it was made. My father knew the story, so we were acquainted with the book. When we first saw the movie , the whole family fell in love with it. It brought the characters to life. After that, no other version was a part of our Christmases. Some of them make Scrooge appear silly & bumbling, but this is far from the truth. He was smart, educated, aware of his surroundings. He knew how to get what he wanted even at the expense of others . He had no tolerance for the poor, & disdained those who had no employment. I could go on & on about the negatives of this man, but I”ll fast forward to his glorious redemption. God saved him from an eternity in Hell. To see how, read the book & watch Alistair Sim in the 1951 movie. You won’t regret it.
