Which one to watch? There are so many versions of “A Christmas Carol”, and everyone has there favorite, that you could spend the entire holiday season watching nothing but various versions of Dicken’s classic. I won’t even attempt to say how many there are. If you include all the TV and radio versions, well it really gets out of hand. The earliest version was a 1901 film called “Scrooge or Marley’s Ghost”, a British short. The latest version is of course the Robert Zemeckis IMAX/3-D version released in November of this year. If you are interested in getting a feel for the many versions check out this LINK to give you an idea.
My own favorites are the 1951 version with Alastair Sims as Scrooge, which was the original title of the film and the 1984 TV movie with George C. Scott.
I will leave you with some posters, ads on other stuff on the various versions.
