Alistair Sim gives the performance of his career as Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol.
Shot on location in London, it has the ultimate feel of the Dickens' classic, a brilliant cast, and is sure to please everyone. Steve Hayes
"In short, what we have in this rendition of Dickens' sometimes misunderstood 'Carol' is an accurate comprehension of the agony of a shabby soul. And this is presented not only in the tortured aspects of Mr. Sim but in the phantasmagoric creation of a somber and chilly atmosphere. These, set against the exhibition of conventional manifests of love and cheer, do right by the moral of Dickens and round a trenchant and inspiring Christmas show." (New York Times, November 1951)
"I would also like to take this opportunity to squash the persistent rumours about mysterious 'disappearances' and emphasize that rural and urban areas are now enjoying a life of harmony and peace. I'm sure you're glad to hear this. And I'm happy you're glad."
