The producers are pleased to present this holiday classic, fully restored and re-mastered from the original 35mm negative discovered in England. Some of Britain's best filmmakers united to produce one of England's greatest classics in this, the most well-known and critically acclaimed version of Charles Dickens' timeless tale. With an authentic, dramatic script by later-director Noel Langley, a superb performance by Alastair Sim and company, and under the careful direction of Brian Desmond Hurst, the 1951 filmed version of "A Christmas Carol" emerges as an outstanding cinematic presentation. Released in the U.S. by United Artists.
