For more cinematic cheer, become a paid Substack or Patreon supporter and get an email every day through January 2, 2022 (and catch up on the ones you’ve missed), recommending a different holiday movie to stream over the festive season.

I love the Alistair Sim Scrooge – haven’t seen the 1999 version you mention in your review. Will get that film ASAP!
I really can’t get enough versions of A Christmas Carol. I live them all! Can there be any other story that has as many filmed versions?
