The 1938 version of A Christmas Carol is black and white and rather outdated but still a favorite. Made as a family film, this version leaves out some of the darker aspects of the original story. I do have to wonder though, given how super-hyper and uber-giggly the Cratchits are, exactly what was in their Christmas punch? 69 minutes.
