A Christmas Carol (1984) Movie Review Summary

Actors: George C. Scott David Warner Roger Rees

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of A Christmas Carol (1984)

The classic story of rich miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, who is shown the light with the help of 3 spirits. Although the Alastair Sim version (1951) is still considered the best version by critics, there are those of us out there that know this, the George C. Scott version is truly the best and most faithful retelling of the Charles Dicken's classic, with standout performances by Scott, Warner, Rees, Edward Woodward and Susannah York. Top that off with authentic scenery (not shot on a sound stage) and a powerful score, this version has it all! Merry Christmas.
