It's like the all-star game
The plot device and the actual quality of the script is nearly irrelevant.
It's like going to an all-star game. You don't go because it's going to be a great game. You go because you want to see all of your favorite players in one place at one time.
Or one of those rock concerts with 20 different acts playing a couple of songs each. They may have their moments but by necessity their greatness is strictly in the number of big name acts to perform.
This film is now over 40 years old. If you aren't familiar with and are not big fans of the cast of this film, you aren't going to enjoy this film very much. Probably if you are under 45 years old, you won't know many of the actors all that well, unless you've spent many years watching Nick at Nite reruns.
I saw this for the first time in a theater in 1970 and enjoyed it very much then. But some of these actors were even before my time.
A Christmas Carol (1984)
I like this version best
I know that the Alistair Sim version is considered more of a "classic" but I think that the George C. Scott version is superior in many ways. In most ways, as a matter of fact.
I think that if this version were shown more frequently on TV, it would be considered the definitive version.
