'A Christmas Carol', not 'Scrooge'.
on November 21, 2016
This concerns the MorningStar Emerald Edition. There were two versions of this film. In North America it was released as 'A Christmas Carol'. In the U.K. it was released as 'Scrooge'. VCI uses the U.K. version in all it's releases except for the very first VHS tape in the '70's. Mornigstar uses the North American version. The restoration is not as extreme as VCI's. The focus is softer, there is munch less grain, and the blacks aren't as quite as deep, but just enough, and the image is clean and stable. This is the way I remember seeing it in the living room on my family's old 12" black and white RCA television. Frankly I'm very glad to have found it.
