A very good purchase Posted by: from: on There are many different versions of this Charles Dickens' classic. Many of them are good and worth watching, but this is the one worth owning. Alastair Sim has been the face of Mr.Scrooge for Many of people. When you watch this dvd, you will know why.

A Classic! Posted by: from: on This version of Charles Dickens' classic tale is by far the best. I personally recommend the previous dvd incarnation over this particular dvd due to the new-high def restoration. For some reason, I have found that many recent high-def restorations of old black & white films turn out rather poorly due to overlighting the film element in order to bring out definition, and in doing so, ruins the original intended cinematography. However, don't let the high-def restoration deter you from buying this masterpiece if you don't have it already. Also beware the incorrectly altered widescreen version available on this disc (this film was originally shot and shown in theaters with a 1.37:1 full-screen aspect ratio, and a theatrically incorrect widescreen version has been included here to cater to fans of the widescreen format.).

Best of the Remakes Posted by: from: Texas on A Christmas carol is one of my favorite Christmas movies. Of all the remakes, this 1951 version with Alastair Sim is the best..The blu ray quality is phenomenal and the Dolby 5.1 is pretty good..Excellent movie. Excellent quality and excellent price..9.99 in the store...If you like this movie this version is worth getting as it also includes a DVD copy..

Oldie but Goodie Posted by: from: Chandler,Az. on This movie has always been my favorite version of a Christmas Carol. Alastair Simms is the best Scrooge in my opinion. I am old fashion at heart and like original B&W classics.

One of my all time fav's Posted by: from: Michigan on My all time favorite X-mas movie. The acting is better than earlier and later versions. The TCM Christmas Carol 1938 can not hold a candle to this version. The Brits are best at these period pieces is true.
