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 WIZARD OF OZ (1939)

Estimated to be the most-watched movie of all-time, it somehow works just as well 82 years later.
