I'm writing this "review" in order to point out the basic error in the previous reviewers remarks. I believe the previous reviewer is actually thinking of the Alistair Sim 1951 version of the story and not the live TV broadcast on the BBC from 1950which he is extremely unlikely to have seen since it's lost - unless he lived in London at the time and saw the original broadcast - doubtful.
Of course one can always hope that a copy of this will turn up at the BFI, along with Bransby Williams previous appearance in the 1928 Phonofilm short. He can be seen in an excerpt from Bleak House filmed in 1926, in which she plays the part of an old miser not unlike Scrooge.
Let's hope that will turn up some day.
(Generally I get quite annoyed when people review things they couldn't possibly have seen, bur in this case I'm fairly certain it was an innocent mistake.) But folks, please check that you really are reviewing the film you think you're reviewing.
