    I don't know what studio owns this title, but I would love to own it on DVD. I'm not sure how big a following this version of the classic tale has, but it is my whole familie's favorite of the bunch.
    Any other HTF members have an opinion on this version of A Christmas Carol?

    It, along with all the other Cinema Center Films owned by CBS and previously released by CBS/Fox video, belong to Paramount now. I'm sure they'll do a tape for Xmas, but it would be nice next Xmas to have this on a 16 x 9 DVD with comments from Ronald Neame.

    This is a great movie. I'd very much like to have it on DVD.

    I also would buy this in a millisecond, for almost any price. Christmas just isn't Christmas to me unless I see this movie every year.

    Mark, this information is very surprising. When did this happen? I (and Ron Epstein) have been asking Peter Staddon of Fox about this title for quite some time (I want it very badly--it's one of my favorite Christmas movies).
    Guess we have to start pestering Martin Blythe!

    Thanks for the info, Mark. It puts Peter Staddon's rather blank expression when asked about the film into context.
