marty D Favourite Christmas Movie? (47) Favourite Christmas Movie? 23 Dec 01


I just watched the OTHER 'A Christmas Carol' for the first time. The one from 1938 with Reginald Owen and Gene Lockhart, and it's not bad. Quite a different telling of the Dickens classic from the Alistair Sim one tho'.

Scrooge personally takes the prize turkey to Bob Cratchit's house and makes himself at home in their little hovel. Does anyone remember how Dickens actually wrote the ending? I still prefer the Sim one. It may be my most watched movie ever. I think I know every bit of dialogue by heart. Haven't seen the George C Scott one yet.

I think 'It's a Wonderful Life' has to be up there too, along with 'Miracle on Thirty Fourth Street'.

Any other favourite Christmas Classics?
