    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.

    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 😞
