A CHRISTMAS CAROL BBC 1977 Michael Hordern DVD
Charles Dickens' novella A Christmas Carol was first published in 1843, and proved such an enormous success that he followed it with three more Christmas books that combined ghosts with the festive season. There have been dozens of film and television adaptations since, ranging from 1901's Scrooge, or, Marley's Ghost (d. W.R. Booth) to A Christmas Carol on Ice.  The BBC's 1977 adaptation, however, remains one of the most faithful and enjoyable, notable for its strong cast and impressive visual style, inspired in the main part by the original illustrations by John Leech, while the ghost sequences make ingenious use of special effects and impressionistic limbo sets.

This compact adaptation stays very close to the original, reproducing much of the dialogue verbatim. Anchoring the production is Michael Hordern's Scrooge. He completely dominates the production, equally convincing as a cynical curmudgeon in the opening scenes and, later, as a panic-stricken old man terrified by the vision of his own dismal death. His final redemption and re-birth as a kinder and more generous human being is appropriately joyous and heart-warming.

This is not a commercial release. DVD comes in a case with artwork and has menu and chapter selection.

A modern take on the familiar Christmas Carol story. Eddie Scrooge is a loan shark on an inner city estate.

Among contemporary adaptations, this is one of the best.
