My favorite film version of the Dickens classic "A Christmas Carol" is the one starring Alistair Sim as Scrooge. Although the Bill Murray comedy version and the Patrick Stewart version come into the top four, for my money, The Muppet Christmas Carol ranks right up there as well. The above clip is my favorite, sappy scene from the movie.
Bless us all, every one.
There are a bazillion more holiday movies that I love, the Grinch being one of my all-time faves along with Charlie Brown Christmas. Of course, this time of year, I also like to pull out The Razor's Edge and watch it and contemplate my mortality and why I haven't gotten off my butt to write the great American novel, so really, what sort of judge of holiday cheer am I? What have you been watching lately?
