A traditional telling of the Christmas Carol with typical of the 1970's special effects and rather complex dialogue at times, watchable but perhaps not a classic.

3 out of 5 santas might watch it!
Get in on Amazon.

The Snow Report

Lots of snow from the very start of the telling or the Christmas Carol, in fact enough for shopping with a sledge.

Santa Sightings

No Santa, however there is a song about Father Christmas, though at the end the big mans suit returns.

Baubles, Lights and Tinsel

At times the decor is very impressive but often lacking as the story requires.

Will It Make Me Cry?

Perhaps it will but I don't think it is likely, I guess if you cry at the Christmas Carol story this will make you cry.

Sing Along

It is a musical so there is lots of singing. However with the exceptions of the carols you are unlikely to know the songs until we get to 'Thank You Very Much'.

Cast Presents

A cast of many big names such as Albert Finney and Alec Guinness.

Cool Christmas

This film features some of the brightest candles every seen on film and the ghost of Christmas past is so posh. This version of the Christmas Carol reminds me of the Muppet version very much at times.
