A faithful retelling of Charles Dickens's 1843 Victorian classic novella A Christmas Carol.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

This early sound adaptation of Charles Dickens' immortal A Christmas Carol (1843) is slow in pace and static in execution.

Audience Reviews for Scrooge

This is just the old story of Ebeneezer Scrooge, no surprises, except maybe the horrible acting.

Super Reviewer

Follows the story closely - there's nothing bad about it per se, but it's so old and bad quality and there's so many versions of this story, that I probably wouldn't watch this again.

I love the original movie made in 1935 in black & white; wonderful story about the mean & cruel Old Scrooge and how he is redeemed with the help of 3 ghosts ( past, present & future ) & little Tiny Tim. A lovely family story which makes you feel warm & hopeful inside !!! The 1970 version with Albert Finney is very good too !
