A Christmas Carol

Series info on UEN-TV

Alastair Sim plays the world-class humbug, Ebenezer, in the 1951 film based on Charles Dickens' beloved fable about a wealthy miser who comes to appreciate the virtues of love and generosity through a series of unusual holiday guests.

This version stands out from dozens of screen adaptations of this classic tale with its unflinching portrayal of the grim results of human meanness—critical for truly experiencing Scrooge’s liberation into gratitude and goodwill at the end. Critics and audiences alike have appreciated this Dickens-like approach.
