I miss Alastair Sim!

24 12 2010

When I was growing up, I used to have a ritual on Christmas Eve: I would tune to Channel 11 (CHCH-TV in Hamilton) and watch the version of “A Christmas Carol” that starred Alastair Sim as Scrooge. It’s been years since I’ve seen it, so I went looking for it tonight, and couldn’t find it. There’s lots of showings of “It’s A Wonderful Life” – at least two stations are broadcasting it – but it’s not the same. Maybe I’ll find a copy of the novel online somewhere (since Dickens is in the public domain) and read some of it instead.

This is the second year I haven’t been able to see the Alastair Sim version, which is also my favorite… I think I’m going to have to buy a copy as Christmas just isn’t complete without it.
