"Festive fare par excellence, and by far the best version committed to celluloid" - Empire
Christmas is not a time of celebration for the tight-fisted Ebenezer Scrooge (Alastair Sim). Scrooge turns aside all charity, treats his overworked clerk Bob Cratchit (Mervyn Johns) with contempt and regards all kindness as 'humbug'.
One night, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of Jacob Marley (Michael Hordern), his late business partner. Scrooge goes to sleep, but he is soon summoned from his bed by a series of ghostly apparitions. The spirits take Scrooge on a journey into the past to meet his younger self (George Cole) and into a bleak future where his loyal servant Mrs Dilber (Kathleen Harrison) is disposing of his purloined effects after his funeral.
It is a nightmare that will change Scrooge forever...
Alastair Sims stars in this classic Christmas story originally written by Charles Dickens. Wonderful family entertainment that is a must to be watched over the Festive period.
