Do you have a copy of this? It's by the same person that annotated The Wondeful Wizard of Oz which was fantastic. Very well researched and indepth. I have no reason to think less of the Christmas Carol annotation. I keep intending to get a copy for the Mr.

My favorite version by far is The Muppet Christmas Carol. Michael Caine as Scrooge = awesome.
I also love this old (1979, I think?) animated one called The Stingiest Man In Town with Walter Matthau as the voice of Scrooge. IDK if anyone else knows it, lol. Unfortunately, the VHS tape that has it went missing and I'm so annoyed.
And I can't forget Mickey's Christmas Carol.

Ever seen this version? I loved it as a kid! Don't listen to anyone who says it's a bad film!

My favorite is the 1938 version with Reginald Owen, Gene Lockhart, Kathleen Lockhart etc.

I think it is amazing because even in 1938 there were a lot of people who had first-hand recollections of Victorian England. Shoot, Gene and Kathleen Lockhart could have had personal memories of it as did Reginald Owen who was older than they were.

The 1951 version comes in second, but it isn't as faithful to the original story by changing ages around and adding characters. :-) (Of course the 1938 version leaves some of the parts of the story out too.)

I watched both the 1938 and the 1951 versions this year and the 1938 version definitely is the best in my opinion.

Merry Christmas!

I read A Christmas Carol every year in December since 1987. I love the characters, story and message. As for the movies I don't believe I have ever seen one I did not like, but my favorite is 1999 version with Patrick Stewart.
Was there no end to this conspiracy of irrational prejudice against Red Ryder and his peacemaker?- A Christmas Story

Hey there all! I'm new to this Christmas forum so I'm behind the times on this post! I hope that users are still on here even though there hasn't been some posts on certain topics for a while. I would like to put my vote in for the 1951 Alister Sim version of A Christmas Carol also! This is a great classic!

I have a new favorite. I love the story of The Christmas Shoes. It's a very touching movie.
