    Synopsis


    A Christmas Carol
    Charles Dickens' classic holiday tale of one man learning the true meaning of Christmas is brought to the screen once again in this made-for-TV movie. Ebenezer Scrooge (George C. Scott) is a cynical old man whose greatest concern is money, and who regards compassion as a luxury he can't afford. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of Jacob Marley (Frank Finlay), his former business partner, who arranges for Scrooge to be visited by three spirits in an attempt to show him the error of his ways -- the Ghosts of Christmas Past (Angela Pleasence), Christmas Present (Edward Woodward), and Christmas Yet to Come (Michael Carter). The spirits force Scrooge to examine the failings of his own life, as well as the bravery and optimism of his loyal but ill-treated employee Bob Crachit (David Warner). A Christmas Carol also features Susannah York as Mrs. Crachit, Anthony Walters as Tiny Tim, and Joanne Whalley as Fan. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      We watch this every year....it really is a reminder to live an unselfish life and to get the real spirit of Christmas....might be a bit scary for younger members of the family, but this is truly a classic, memorable movie! I think it is even inspirational while also being just a good, well-done movie. George C Scott does an excellent job of being Mr Scrooge. My favorite movie version of The Christmas Carol, though I have also read Patrick Stewart also is worth watching as Scrooge.

      A Great Addition To A Christmas Video Collection!

      I have been wanting to add a DVD of Charles Dickens' beloved classic to our Christmas video collection, but I was never sure which of the various versions would be best. After hearing a rave review about George C. Scott's performance in "A Christmas Carol," I decided to go with this one and was not disappointed. This is a very well done, heartwarming rendition of that great drama, and the quality of Blu-ray and 5.1 audio make it all the more enjoyable. Unfortunately, there are no Special Features, but this DVD has now become a Christmas tradition in our household!

      Wonderful Adaptation of Dickens' Novel

      I first saw this movie on Christmas morning on the WB channel in 2002 and I absolutely loved it. George C. Scott is a Wall Street version of Scrooge (the movie was made in the late '80s, I believe), but he's very good in the role. It's a very well made adaptation that stands the test of time. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys holiday movies. This is top notch.

      The Charles Dickens Christmas Story comes alive on-screen and it’s truly a grand family viewing experience. The story-line is set in London, England – circa early 1800’s. David Warner [Bob Cratchit] as-well-as the rest of the Supporting Actors, backs-up George C. Scott’s [Ebenezer Scrooge], memorable performance turning this tale of Christmas into a must-see annual viewing event.

      The Best Christmas Carol Ever

      What can I say except it is George C. Scott playing Scrooge. If you remember Scott playing Patton, this is the same intensive effort to make Scrooge not just an old scrooge, but a human who had a bad childhood and made decisions that left him seeking wealth rather than love. I wish it was in wide screen.

      One of the best versions of A Christmas Carol

      I've seen several versions of A Christmas Carol and this is one of the best. The acting is very good and the story stays pretty close to the book with only a few small differences. I found the audio and video quality to be excellent. The only disappointment is the lack of extras. I was very happy to find this in the $7.99 bin!

      The best version

      I have always regarded the late George C. Scott as one of the best actors. To me, this is the definitive version of this story. I have seen a couple of other versions, and they suffer compared to his performance. The other cast of characters are also very good. People should watch this movie every Christmas.
