Disney's A Christmas Carol

Last night we watched the 1951 Alistair Sim Scrooge. Tonight we did our traditional trip to the pictures and watched the Disney version, featuring cartoons.

It really is a very good film. Americanisms hardly enter at all. Some of the camera angles are fantastic. I love the way the characters actually have the facial features of the actors voicing them.

Dickens is one of Britain's few genius writers. He was the Jim Morrison of his age, being both critically and popularly acclaimed, a master of his art. And A Christmas Carol is one of his best works. It's been done many times and will probably be done many times again.

Go on then, have a great Christmas/Yule!
