The Ghost of Christmas Present tells Ebenezer to "hop on" implying they will both be riding the same horse. When Ebenezer refuses, the ghost magically jerks him aboard a second horse. One of the subsequent scenes of the two riding through the air is a close-up of Ebenezer talking directly in the Ghost's ear from behind, as would occur if the two were on the same horse. In all other scenes of them riding, they are on separate horses. See more »
I have a feeling that people who trash this movie are doing so out of a deep seeded love for the Alistair Sim classic, and a refusal to enjoy any other version. This is an interesting adaptation and worth watching.
I especially enjoy the fact that the story continues after Scrooges transformation, showing how people deal with an overnight change in someone they have long feared and stopped trusting.
Hey, I like the 1951 version too, watch them both for Christmas!
