There are numerous versions of this Charles Dickens Classic: A Christmas Carol. Which is your favorite?
I have two favorites: The Muppet Christmas Carol and the version with George C. Scott playing Ebenezer Scrooge. There is also a musical version that's really great! It has a lively little tune called "Thank you very much!"
LOVE the version with Albert Finney, it is a DARKER version of the movie classic!
Yes ... Albert Finney was in the 1970s version! That is a good one. Reginald Owen was in the 1938 version which I believe is the longest and extremely good as well! George C. Scott was in the 1984 version! All these are great! Michael Caine is in the 1992 Muppet version.
I enjoy many of these renditions, but found the 2004 Musical staring Kelsey Grammer particularly enjoyable. Writing was clever, and the performances were well executed.
I will have to check if I have seen that.
If you do, let me know what you think. Haven't seen it in years, but remember enjoying it. I think I'll find it to watch again this year.
Oh, George C. Scott, by far is my favorite Christmas Carol. It does make me think about the past year and if I have been as good and kind a person as I should have been.
There are many, but George C. is the one that has the biggest turn-a-round from his
Merry Christmas to you, Jacqueline!

Can you handle reading novels by Charles Dickens, or do you feel like you might die of boredom?I love "A Christmas Carol" and "A Tale of Two Cities", but I can't handle reading much else by Dickens because he was too verbose and took too long to get to the point. Anyone else?
