The ghosts of Christmases past, present, and future to show him the error of Scrooge's ways and show the people who are able to keep Christmas in their hearts 365 days a year. Easily the best adaptation of the Dickens classic which can be attributed to several reasons. Sim's performance transcends all description of greatness. Hurst's direction evokes the ideal emotions at all the right moments. The rest of the cast remain faithful to the Dickens' characterizations. A perfect film to watch during the holiday season. Rating, 10.

If you don't know the story, shame, shame......Reviewed byMike-764Vote: 10/10
Unpopular opinion I know. Sorry. The greatest version ever? Not really. Don't get me wrong I do love this adaptation but don't feel it lives up to the original Dickens tale. A lot of the acting felt-to me-either too rushed or dull and monotone. And if it wasn't either of those then it was too over the top. Now I also know many basically worship Alastair Sim but I feel Seymour Hicks portrayed Scrooge in the 1935 movie better. Again I know my opinion is the unpopular one here but that's my feelings on it.
Best version on film of the timeless Dickens story. There are other versions I enjoy as well, and some more so for sentimental reasons. But, objectively, I believe this is the best version on a technical and artistic level. The production is first-rate. The cast is excellent. Especially Alastair Sim, who is perfect casting as Scrooge. He adds little touches to the character that sets his performance apart from the countless other Scrooges. As for the story, well unless you have been living under a rock or weren't raised in an English-speaking country, then you should know the plot to this classic. Miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve to show him the error of his ways. Obviously I recommend the book because it's a seminal classic. But, as far as film versions go, this is the one everyone should see first.
