Best Buy Customer Reviews

One of my favorites around the holidays. Posted by: from: Malibu, California on The first time I saw this adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" I was pleasantly surprised by the different approach this version presented. Henry Winkler plays "Benedict Slade" which in this version is a Scrooge type character who is a heartless finance company president in 1932 during the Depression in the North East of the U.S. The premise of the movie is basically the same as the other Christmas Carols, Scrooges etc. Mr. Slade get's visited by three ghosts that try to reverse his pattern of not caring and plain old meanness into a person with a heart after Mr. Slade goes on a repossession run by seizing his clients furniture, clothing, jewelry and anything of value to collect on unpaid loans. Henry does an excellent job portraying this "Scrooge" type without over doing it, along with the rest of the cast. It's a movie the entire family can enjoy from the youngest to the oldest. Enjoy.

Not the best version but I love it anyway. Posted by: from: on This version is close to my heart. I saw it as a teen. Yes, I'm that old. If you can get past Henry Winkler's 70's hair in the Christmas past scenes, you will likely enjoy it too.
