#085 Blitz Q: Merry Christmas–Which is the best version of A Christmas Carol (to you)?

I’ve always heard of the George C. Scott version, but finally got a chance to watch it this morning (thumbs up so far), which got me remembering what I originally wanted to post last night.

I was down all day with headache, dizziness and a sore throat, so my brain was totally off kilter.

I can’t believe how many different versions of A Christmas Carol there are on film and TV, and certainly can’t remember them all. On the other hand, I CAN believe it, because it’s such a great story. But some have their particular faves and some don’t.

Frankly, my silly tradition has been to pull out The Muppet Christmas Carol and watch it a few times. One, I love the Muppets. Two, it’s the only “Christmas Carol” story I have on DVD!

But there are plenty of others. I unfortunately keep missing the Alastair Sim one from 1951 or around there, which I’ve seen pieces of but never the whole thing. And of course Patrick Stewart. I think he’s a fabulous Scrooge.

So, are there particular versions of A Christmas Carol you enjoy (or it’s adaptations)? And why those particular versions?

…Floor’s yours.

Have a great season.
