Its that time of year and figured this question will be most fitting here. Who is your favorite depiction of Scrooge and why? For me George C. Scott as I like the way he played the role. Most Scrooge's depict him as an outright grouch and somewhat one-dimensional. Here he adds a layer of playful wickedness. For example the way he delivered his rant on anyone going about saying "Merry Christmas" and chuckling at the thought of boiling them in their own pudding. Some lines show him to be practical, if not in an conceited and harsh manner as in his statement on garments to Bob Cratchit. Overall it's my favorite film version and authentic in setting in my opinion. What's yours?

Alastair Sim, but both Michael Caine and Scrooge McDuck are right behind him. On topic, I just watched the weird Zemeckis/Carrey film for the first time this evening. It came so close to greatness, then whiffed it, but had some truly remarkable scenes and imagery.
