1951, 20th Century Fox, 66 min, UK, Dir: Brian Desmond Hurst

Also known as SCROOGE, this British-made fantasy may be the definitive film version of Charles Dickens’ holiday classic. Alastair Sim is pitch-perfect as Ebenezer Scrooge, whose miserly outlook is transformed by three spirits who visit him on Christmas Eve. The fine supporting cast includes Patrick Macnee, Hermione Baddeley and Kathleen Harrison.
