Is there any hope that WB will release this film on DVD any time soon? Thanks.
The VHS was put out by MGM/UA in 1985 I would love to see this on DVD as i grew up with this movie as a kid.
I've had it on Laserdisc for years. I would hope that the extras on the LD would be on a DVD too. To me this is the definative version of the film.
Are you talking about the Alistair Sim version or the one starring Reginald Owen?
I'm pretty sure he means the Reginald Owen version, the Alistair Sim version was released in the early 50's & is already out on DVD I believe.
Yes, the Reginald Owen version.
The 1938 version is nice (MGM), but the Alistair Sim 1951 release (available from VCI) is so superior....might be one of the all-time best attempts at doing Dickens on film (along with the two David Lean's "Great Expectations" and "Oliver Twist"). The VCI print is damn good and it's dirt-cheap too. Run out and buy it...you'll love it.
Well I guess it is a matter of taste as I prefer the 1938 version over the fine Sim version...of course my favorite version of all is the 1970 Albert Finney musical...but there you go.
There are quite a few fine versions of the Dickens classic. Each year, we try to dutifully watch as many as we can, with our favorites being the 1951 Alastair Sim, the 1938 Reginald Owens, and the 1984 George C. Scott. Heck, we even enjoy Mr. Magoo and Mickey Mouse! Harry
