Alister Sim's Scrooge, in addition to being a wonderful film, is sentimental for me because when I was in school they used to show this film in all the classrooms on the day we got out of school for Christmas vacation. I always associate "Scrooge" with that happy memory. After I bought a copy for myself, I grew to love this movie in more ways than one. It has some dark moments (not scary, but intense), as well as some touching and downright hilarious ones. I could watch this multiple times in one holiday season and never get tired of it. Alastir Sim is brilliant as Ebenezer Scrooge, who, after an unwanted visit from three spirits, realizes the true meaning of Christmas. As Tiny Tim once observed..."God bless us every one"!
