Scrooge (1951)

Scrooge (1951) starring the great Alastair Sim, based on one of best Christmas stories of all time, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.  There are many versions of this classic tale but none in my opinion quite capure the mood and atmosphere of the Alastair Sim film.

What 10 Must See Movies This Christmas list would be complete without the classic It’s A Wonderful Life? George Bailey (James Stewart) has reached the end of the line with no way out, enter Clarence an Angel yet to earn his wings to show George the true worth of his life.  A genuine Christmas classic that is enjoyed by many each year.
