SCROOGE (1951)

Alastair Sim plays the title character in what was considered for decades to be maybe the definitive version of the Dickens story, though I was a little thrown by the way the movie makes up a bunch of extra bits of Scrooge’s origin story for no discernible reason.

THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL (1992)

My favorite Christmas movie, bar none, featuring Michael Caine as Scrooge and Gonzo the Great as Charles Dickens.

SCROOGED (1988)

A Christmas Carol for the 1980s, extremely cynical and with more people getting hit in the face with toasters.
