                  I have the book A Christmas Carol, and no version I have ever seen did it as the book dictated. This one added dialoge that was not in the book. And it skipped a couple of scenes, like Scrooge's visit to the Crachit family by the second and third ghost. There were scenes by the 2nd ghost that took Scrooge all over the place.

                      Something always seems to go missing when translated. The same can be true of making a musical from a straight comedy. Some exceptions noted. I may be prejudiced due to my age. The first time I saw the original B & W version was in school, on a white sheet. All others made since have never captured the magic.

                          This a very abbreviated version of A Christmas Carol. If you didn't already know the why Scrooge repents you wouldn't get it from this version.

                            Did not expect this particular version to be a musical. I like the older versions of this classic, but not into musical versions.

                                  I'm the kind of person who can watch the same movie over and over. I love the older movies and I like Christmas movies all year round , why wait just for christmas time to come around. TCM has a great variety of movies I'm so glad I found them it is my go to shop for most, if not for all my movie needs. I would recommend this DVD to any who like the older classic in a christmas movie.

                                  Thanks TCM

                                    It's the best production of Charles Dicken's book, A Christmas Carol. It's black and white, but color would ruin the mood of story. Actors were well chosen and fit the parts they play. It's a little spooky which adds to the message. The messages how important it is to have a positive attitude, and how important it is to give of yourself to others.
