    The only option for A Christmas Carol is The Muppet Christmas Carol. It’s definitively the most faithful adaptation of the book, and is just excellent!

    I want to watch all of them! My absolute favourites would be:

    The 1949 version of Little Women, with June Allyson as Jo

    The 1988 BBC version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Best White Witch ever, but Lucy is too old and a bit moany.

    The 1971 animated version of A Christmas Carol. Originally shown on TV, but went on to win an Oscar.

      Some of the ones I picked I’m not too keen on. For example, I haven’t seen enough of Meet me in Saint Louis to have an opinion. However I have a cousin who resembles this version of Judy Garland, so I picked it out of loyalty.

    The 1951 Christmas Carol with Alastair Sim. It is actually the BEST Christmas Carol, bar none.

      God, yes. I once spent Christmas eve in a Central Valley motel (expedition to see the swans and snow geese), smoking weed and literally sobbing over Tiny Tim. Alistair S. is a superb Scrooge,

      Agreed. My father particularly loved Fezziwig’s party and ‘Thank you Very Much’.

    Cheers Versailles style. That means a lot of wine, flirtation from the king, a lot of excess, and the poor suffering in the city. But I am a huge French history nerd, so Versailles works for me.

    You forgot the mid-90s version of Anna K with Helen McCrory. The best version, hands down.

      I also would have chosen that one — primarily for Stephen Dillane, who actually gets to play Karenin like he was written in the book and not as a one-note villain. I never really liked the other two leads, though.

    Doctor Zhivago: the scene in country looking out of a window that flowed from snowflakes to wild flowers.

      I got 1930’s.

      My favorite Christmas season film is The Shop Around the Corner. Not a Frock Flick because it was set in contemporary Budapest. Just before the war. With young Jimmy Stewart, just before his war.

        I’d like to see that again. Jimmy Stewart was a good romantic comedian before he got all aw-shucksy.

    I got Cheers 1920s style. That’s one of my favorite eras, so I’ll take it! Downton Abbey is one of my all-time favorite TV shows, so I’ll take it too, especially if Rob James-Collier is waiting for me at the front door with a tray full of champagne. Cheers, indeed!

    My favourite Christmas Carol is the Guthrie Theatre’s. Each year they put on a new production and we went up to the Twin Cities, every school year, to watch it. In that regard, I grew up spoiled (The Twin Cities has some excellent theaters).

    I have to commend all the FF women with their very scientific and extremely accurate polls. It’s nice to be in a place that places a high value on science and math. Bravo! Cheers, 1920’s style.
