If I don't reread A Christmas Carol, I at least watch the 1951 film version with Alastair Sim every year. Sorry, Muppets, but that's the best one. He's much less a caricature of a mean old skinflint in that one, and the logical progression of the ghosts from past to present to future makes more sense than in many a version. I don't quite agree that he's scared straight, per se. The Ghost of Christmas Past shows him what he was before money took him down the wrong path, and where he went wrong, Present shows him why he is wrong, and only Future warns of where he's headed if he doesn't quit being wrong. It was written as a scathing indictment of the economic inequality of the Victorian period, and the '51 presents that aspect better than any other except maybe the Patrick Stewart version.

I took part in a Live Reading of A Christmas Carol this past Christmas! It's fascinating how the story continually remains relevant. I love the Patrick Stewart version. I don't remember which one I posted reviews for at Horror Addicts, but I have a whole bunch at my general review blog I Think, Therefore I Review.
I just watched recently The Man Who Invented Christmas, which was about Dickens writing A Christmas Carol. The book it's based on is non fiction but the fictional film of course, places Dickens in among his characters.
Actually, now that I think of it, it might be my book review that's at Horror Addicts. It's a ghost story after all! I love, love Dickens but he goes way too hard with the social reforms in Hard Times. Woof.
Emz: Thanks for coming Trin and Kbatz thanks for all your work on this. It really is an awesome thing and I enjyed reading the transcripts.

robbiec: A most interesting post. I really enjoyed the comments and discussion about Shakespeare whose stories I have always enjoyed. My favourite story is Romeo and Juliet [sorry about that].
