Although the opening credit sequence is basically the same, the typeface used for the sequence in the "letterboxed" version is entirely different. In this version, the credits are printed entirely in capital letters. See more »
Patrick Stewart brings Ebenezer Scrooge to life in this wonderful production. As he moves from the embittered character which we are first presented with, through the intense emotions of a man reformed by the Christmas spirit, we are both astounded and captivated by the depth of Scrooge's character. A pleasure to watch.
