Christmas Carol is a true holiday classic that I grew up watching on t.v. during Christmas time.
My husband and I watched it the other night, and that was the first time I had seen it in a long time, perhaps the first time I had seen it in my adult life.
Alastair Sim's Scrooge is full of bah humbug until he is greeted in the middle of the night by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley who warns him to change his greedy selfish ways and informs Scrooge that he will receive visits from three ghosts during the middle of the night.
A fun treat for Avengers fans is Patrick Macnee's performance as the young Jacob Marley.
The copy of Christmas Carol that we rented also included an animated version of Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer that was a fun little treat to watch.
