The Best Film Adapation of A Christmas Carol

The N. Y. Times has picked the 1951 British version of A Christmas Carol as the best film Adaptation. This has always been my view as well. Alastair Sim is just remarkable as Scrooge, no one could do it better!

Check out the Link and you will see a good case made for the superiority of this particular adaptation of the story:


There are of course many other marvelous versions. Anybody have a different pick for best version?

Also see my previous post http://mattwion.blogspot.com/2008/12/dickens-reminds-us-what-christmas-is.html for my pick of the best animated version of Carol, this one also has Alastair Sim as Scrooge.
