Scrooge … 1951 Masterpiece

21 Dec

“A Loving heart is the truest wisdom.”
– Charles DickensAlastair George Bell Sim, CBE
1900 –1976

Some people are born for a role. Alistair Sim IS Scrooge.

Call it ‘Inspired Casting” or whatever you like,  but not only is this the finest vision and version of Charles Dicken’s Spiritually inspired story,
but Scrooge is among the Finest Films of all time.
Most other film interpretations are pale as
Morley’s ghost when measured against this Classic.

Colorized ?? Bah?…. Not bad at all.

Scrooge, movie and book (A Christmas Carol)
contains literally (if you’ll excuse the expression)
dozens of quotable passages – a sure sign of Inspired writing.

A Christmas Carol (1843)

And a sure sign that Charles Dickens himself was in a Class of his own.

Special Effects before their time that still hold up today.

Look for a young Patrick McNee (Avengers)

Truly an heartwarming and uplifting movie.
I watch it every year (and cry my eyes out).
And will again.

“Bob’s yer Uncle!”

and God Bless us – Everyone!

    The 1951 version is the only one worth watching. It was funny when I discovered that it was the only one my granddaughter thought worth watching. Every now and then, generations actually agree on something — and Scrooge was it!

      A couple of the others are OK … but Scrooge has the Magic!
      Merry Christmas to You and Garry!
