||Synopsis: It's the end of December and professional miser Ebenezer Scrooge absolutely despises this time of the year. He thinks Christmas is all humbug. He doesn't buy his nephew's talk of Christmas being a kind time, thinks it's absolute madness his servant Cratchit wants a day off and sends away collectors of donations for the poor penniless. It's also the time of the year in which his companion Jacob Marley died seven years ago. When he is all alone, he suddenly sees Marley again, in the door handle, in a tile, a bell suddenly rings. Humbug, thinks Scrooge. But then Marley really appears for him and tells him he should change his life. He warns Scrooge he will be haunted by three spirits, the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. Written by Arnoud Tiele ([email protected])

Watch A Christmas Carol - Alternative Versions.
I highly recommend this terrific U.K. television version of A CHRISTMAS
CAROL and I wish it was better known than it is. Some PBS stations used to
show it in the late 1970's and early 1980's but since then this version of
the Dickens Christmas classic has shown up rarely even on cable.
Let me make it clear right off the bat that I'm one of those people who
could watch an "All CHRISTMAS CAROL, All The Time" channel every December.
That doesn't mean that I love each and every version of the story that
along, it just means I love watching them all every single year. This
adaptation of the story stands out from every other film and television
version I've seen and only it's low budget and short running time put it
behind the George C Scott classic.
The lighting may be 70's sitcom level and for some scenes this T.V. movie
may use painted backgrounds but it wins the viewer over by demonstrating
over and over again that it "gets" the point of the story. There's no
attempt to psycho-analyze any of the characters, no silly attempt to
contemporize the ghosts, no omission of Ignorance and Want and for once
Belle doesn't overstay her welcome.
The secret of this version's appeal is that it uses nothing but Dickens'
story and best of all, nothing but Dickens' own dialogue. This may put the
conversational exchanges over the heads of very young viewers but those
love the novelette will be ecstatic about this. Dickens' wordplay in the
original story is wonderfully close to prose poetry and it's delightful to
hear it presented in it's original form.
Similarly, there are no fabrications of scenes not in the "real" story and
no extraneous characters added. I enjoy seeing what some adaptors do with
the story as much as anyone but it's refreshing to see a visual depiction
nothing but the content in the original classic.
Non-devotees of A CHRISTMAS CAROL would likely rate this lower than I do
since I think the emotional bang of this telefilm makes up for it's budget
limits. Even CAROL purists may be put off by the omission of some scenes
from the original story but with the short running time that can't be
remedied. Unless someone eventually does a film version of this story
as slavish to it's source material as Erich Von Stroheim's GREED was to
novel McTEAGUE I don't think we'll see an adaptation that comes closer
this to realizing Dickens' original work.
As long as you don't expect outstanding production values I think the
heartfelt performances and respect for the viewers' intelligence will put
this version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL near the top of your list.
