    i thought it might be this version-the animation is in the cruickshank style and is very good! i'm sure i have it somewhere!

    Everyone always gets upset about Tiny Tim but nobody already mentions the 8 Cratchitt kids that already died

    I love the Sim version, absolutely my favourite, but I have a fondness for the Patrick Stewart/Hallmark version. A lot of the supporting cast are awful, especially the kids, but it reminds me of seeing Stewart's one-man stage version which was incredible.

    Haven't seen the Scott version since I was a kid, will have to check it out.

    The best Scrooge by far, although I love the Albert Finney one. Always on my iPod.

    On the subject of colorisation, it's a matter of personal taste. I don't mind either one.

    This is perhaps the greatest film ever made, It has all the elements for a wonderful film and all the actors and every scene is beautifully realized, I also love Alastair Sim, I would love to have all of the films with him that are not commercially available, Please let me know if you will help me with any Alastair Sim titles, Thank you.

    I just enjoyed A Christmas Carol (Scrooge) again and looked up the actress playing Scrooges' s nephew's wife. Olga Edwardes.

    In certain shots she does have a resemblance to Jenny Agutter but obviously it couldn't have been Jenny.

    Cheers for Kathleen Harrison, the finest housekeeper/char ever to grace the screen. I am also a great fan of Alastair Sim. But her response to Scrooge's personality metamorphosis is priceless. That is, in keeping with the situ-eye-tion.

    I post on a couple of American forums, and they all swear by the George C Scott version.

    Personally, I have never seen the fuss about it, and find the classic Sim version far superior.
