The list author says: "Charles Dickens A "Christmas Carol" was first published December 19, 1843. Many adaptations have been made from it, including many motion pictures, television movies, tv episodes and cartoons of the story. The 5 most popular movies we have enjoyed in our childhood are: "Scrooge" (1935) starring Seymour Hicks, "A Christmas Carol" (1938) starring Reginald Owen, "A Christmas Carol" (1951) starring Alastair Sim, "Scrooge" (1970) starring Albert Finney, and "A Christmas Carol" (1984) starring George C. Scott. I think the time has come for them to make a new grand motion picture version with live actors without it being animation."
