A Christmas Carol (1951)

Every year I like to watch the 1951 version of A Christmas Carol in black and white. It is, IMO, the definitive version of the Dickens' story. The black and white cinematography only enhances the story about the plight of the poor in London at the time and the actors, especially Alistair Sim, have amazingly expressive faces throughout.

This version (below) is complete, showing portions often not seen when it is played on television.

After enjoying the movie, stop by this website to read all about the movie and how it was made.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
