Adequate retelling but the George C. Scott version is still the best.

Stewart may not look the part, but his sounding of it (man, I love that voice) and masterful ability to embody it more than makes up for this. Of course, that's only the beginning, as the film features total honesty to the original tale and is of a very fine production. Still, there is the aformentioned strange choice of casting and the occasional slow part. In spite of this, the film is a high quality TV film to give you that real cenimatic feeling, or at least until that Christmasy feeling comes along.
