Relive Alistair Sim’s A Christmas Carol, 1951

Starting at $5.99$24.99

Let RetroSparX spark your memory of the 1951 film adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol with A Humbug Hit. While the film did not meet with instant success, watching Alistair Sim’s iconic portrayal of Ebenezer Scrooge and his transformative encounter with three Spirits of Christmas has become one of the most beloved Christmas traditions. Through the stark and gloomy cinematography of Victorian-era London struggling with poverty and class divisions, comes a message of salvation and hope. Read about this cinematic treasure.

As an added bonus, in From Miserly to Magnanimous, let yourself be reminded of some of the better-known lines from A Christmas Carol, which, among other things, map out Scrooge’s arc of redemption.
