One of our Christmas traditions is sitting down with the family and watching one of many versions of Charles Dickens' story A CHRISTMAS CAROL. This is one of our favs! Yes it is a musical, but not a totally corny one. The lyrics to the songs are great, and the story doesn't stray from the original story line. Sir Alec Guiness makes a great dead Marley, and the kid actors are good. Albert Finney makes a great miserable old Scrooge--you really will enjoy it.
