Best version on film of the timeless Dickens story. There are other versions I enjoy as well, and some more so for sentimental reasons. But, objectively, I believe this is the best version on a technical and artistic level. The production is first-rate. The cast is excellent. Especially Alastair Sim, who is perfect casting as Scrooge. He adds little touches to the character that sets his performance apart from the countless other Scrooges. As for the story, well unless you have been living under a rock or weren't raised in an English-speaking country, then you should know the plot to this classic. Miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve to show him the error of his ways. Obviously I recommend the book because it's a seminal classic. But, as far as film versions go, this is the one everyone should see first.

The Best Verson of A Christmas CarolReviewed byutgard14Vote: 8/10
I have been in love with this movie ever since I first saw it when I was about 5 or 6. Ever since then, every Christmas I have sat down to watch this amazing classic film about a wicked man who is visited by three spirits who hope to make him change his ways.
It's obvious that this is the best film adaptation of Dickens' novel in existence, and it's probably the most well known. The movie is made so well, it was really a milestone for films back then. The special effects in this movie are really good for their time, and they still hold up today. This movie just has a Christmassy feel to it. You get that Christmas feeling when you're watching it, just like you might get the Halloween feeling when watching Halloween. The performances in this movie are something else. Alastair Sim gave the best performance of his career in this film.
I truly believe that A Christmas Carol set the tone for Christmas movies of that era and of today. It really is the best Christmas movie ever made, and not only that, but it is an amazing movie outside of the Christmas season as well. This is a classic that will still be going strong in another 55 years.
On Christmas Eve in 1840's England, miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, who warns him to change his ways or be doomed to eternal damnation. The ghosts of Christmases past, present, and future to show him the error of Scrooge's ways and show the people who are able to keep Christmas in their hearts 365 days a year. Easily the best adaptation of the Dickens classic which can be attributed to several reasons. Sim's performance transcends all description of greatness. Hurst's direction evokes the ideal emotions at all the right moments. The rest of the cast remain faithful to the Dickens' characterizations. A perfect film to watch during the holiday season. Rating, 10.
