"THE" Classic Christmas Tale

While it is nice to have the colorized version, the B&W is the best way to enjoy this timeless classic. This movie is my favorite of all the Christmas Carol variants produced over the years. The engaging story of redemption is one that made a huge impact on my as youth. Fully restored, it now sparkles on my TV, looking better than I rember it from when it was on broadcast television so many years ago. Of course, TVs are a lot better too these days, hahaha.

I was impressed by the wealth of features included, colorized version included. The bio of Dickens was particularly interesting for me, and the Hearn and Cole commentary insightful.

If you want to give a real gift to someone you care about this holiday season, you could do worse than this wonderful movie. Introduce your children or grandchildren to the cinema version of Dicken's story the right way. 5 stars well deserved!
