    There are many versions of A Christmas Carol, but I like the Alastair Sim version best. He gives the main character a lot more personality than just the "sociopathic curmudgeon" of the other versions. I watch them all, though.

    I look forward to the new remake almost every year.
    Great story.

    I like the George C Scott version too. Though I like Mr. Sim's version as well.

    George C Scott one and the Muppets version. It’s actually really good.

    I wanna go back and take a look at the CGI one that came out 10 years ago or so. As a whole I think it sucked but one of the ghosts was epic and there were a couple great scenes if I remember correctly.

    My favorite two are the Alastair Sim version and the 1938 Reginald Owen version.

    My favorite is the 1938 Reginald Owen version with the 1951 Alastair Sim a close second.
