UK Xmas Carol
14 December 2005 | by javadude67002See all my reviews

This Christmas Carol was broadcast on the local PBS station here in Wichita about 2 years ago. It's no Alistair Sim version by any means, but it is a VERY well done up to date version that is rather dark. It's also sort of a tangent related to a similar version called "An American Christmas Carol" with Henry Winkler 1979 where he plays a similar loan-shark character. This UK version is very well done, and I wish it would come out on DVD.

I managed to get a hold of a VHS copy and treasure it.

Death is by far one of the best ghosts I have seen in a while.
