      The famous black-and-white 1951 British version of “A Christmas Carol” starring Alastair Sim is considered a classic and loved by many. Before I had watched it for the first time, I heard

      his movie praised so much that I thought I was going to love it as well.

      However, that did not happen.

      I agree that it is a good, high quality production, but I did not fall in love with it as I expected.

      The changes they made to the story are, in my opinion, unnecessary.

      does not show the transformation of Scrooge very well.

      The only emotion we see is fear when the ghostly visitations begin, and then joyful exuberance when his life is given back to

      him.

      Maybe it’s just me, but I did not see much in between.

      Compare this with the brilliant performance of George C.

      Scott in the later 1984 version, and you will see what I mean.
