A letterboxed version formatted for HDTV is currently (2007) being shown on Turner Network Television. This version is cropped (the top and bottom are cut off). The picture was not made in widescreen and was not shown that way originally. The DVD is also made in fullscreen, not letterboxed or anamorphically enhanced. See more »
Bravo to TNT pictures for putting together two things that were made for each other; the role of Ebenezer Scrooge and the acting of Patrick Stewart. I could think of no other current actor who could approach Stewarts ability to grasp this complex role and after viewing the film I am convinced; Stewart is a genius.
