Just discovered ANOTHER screen version of the Dickens masterpiece is on now on BBC1. That capitalised "another" is not out of weariness, but excitement - I don't think there can be enough versions of this beautifully told fable. I simply adore it. I love alternate versions too, like Scrooged and The Muppets' take.
I just find it so damn heartwarming - and it attempts to understand auld Ebeneezer too - his cynicism is a cloak of protection from hurt, but kindness triumphs, yet schmaltz free.
However it's dark as hell too. Wonder was Scrooge having a mental breakdown? Love analysing it.
Anyone else here share my deep love for this tale?
