A Magnificent Story Enhanced By The Amazing Alastair Sims
Inspiring so many to bring his words to the screen, Charles Dickens created brilliance and imagination. The 1951 film is a honourable adaption to Dickens’ story. As movies relate to the book detail may be lost and scenes might alter how the book describes it, but Alastair Sims as Ebenezer Scrooge illustrated something that Dickens only related about the character, without being able to show a scene that spelled it out. Sims version comes to enhance the story with the harshness of his demenor, the stubborness of his ways and the conflict of his emotions as he faces the misery and happiness of his life and begins to understand. Beauty all around my favourite part is Christmas day as he dances, stands on his head and scares the bejesus out of Mrs. Dilber. On The Fourth Show Of Christmas celebrate the wonderful Christmas Carol with Alastair Sims.
