Alastair Sim gave us the definitive Ebenezer Scrooge in this perfect adaptation of Dickens’ Yuletide tale.
Dir Brian Desmond Hurst
With Alastair Sim, Mervyn Johns, Hermione Baddeley
Of all the actors to play the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge in film history, none has bettered the great Alastair Sim in this darkly joyous adaptation of the classic festive novel by Charles Dickens. With supernatural visits showing him what was, is and could be, Scrooge goes on a journey during the course of one Christmas Eve that could change his outlook on life for ever.
