The Top TenXW
By far, the best presentation of this classic and beloved story.
Starring George C. Scott, David Warner, Susannah York, Frank Finlay, Edward Woodward and Nigel Davenport. - Ajkloth
Stays close to the book, is special because it really explains Scrooge's character - and the change.
Forgive me, but there is no way that this could be anything but No. #1. I don't know a single person who would watch another version over this one. Many consider it to be the greatest Christmas movie ever made. It's success was so great that Alastair Sim reprised his role as Scrooge in an Oscar-winning animated short film version. This is like ranking The Beatles lower than Nickelback on a Top Ten Bands list. - BKAllmightyV1 Comment
This is quite a divisive adaptation in as much as, in the same way that Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty is often considered a poor wannabe of Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs, this is considered by many to be a poor wannabe of Oliver!
A spiritual cousin to Oliver! Which likewise was a musical adaptation of a Dickens novel.V2 Comments
