Definitely!!!

In fact, I collect versions of "A Christmas Carol". Even the animated versions. Don't think I'm missing even one.

Hands down best? The Alastair Sim version. No one has ever duplicated that one.

Patricia McCormack

I think everyone wanted to smack this kid and I wanted to add her mother to the list for being such a wimp lol. Did anyone know that Patricia McCormack was in the Three's Company spin-off series The Ropers as their neighbors wife ?

Oh and it was Imitation Of Life I was thinking of so if that's not the right movie, I don't know what other movie it could be.

Well... many of my all time favourite films are from the 80s, probably because that was the decade where I was growing up... films like

Stand By Me
Fish Called Wanda
Princess Bride
Never Ending Story
Christmas Story
Roxanne
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Biloxi Blues
Indiana Jones "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "the Last Crusade"
etc. etc... they all are quite dear to my heart still.

Casablanca and Roman Holiday are two of the black and white classic I am particularly fond of. For years I have been curious about that old film Meg Ryan kept watching in "Sleepless in Seattle" (Affair to Remember if I am not mistaken??), but I have yet to see it... is it worth bothering about it, if anyone has seen it???

I liked An Affair to Remember- I watched the "old" one after watching a newer version with Annette Benning and Warren Beattie which I liked alot.

Thats DH's all time favorite Christmas movie. They usually run it really late at night right before Christmas around here and DH always stays up to watch it. However, for the last couple years we haven't been able to find it on t.v. I'm going to surprise him this year and buy him a copy of it on DVD and that way he can watch it whenever he wants.

I too love the old Christmas ones. But my all time favorite (not really that old) is "The Homecoming" ...The Waltons.

The DVD version of Alistair Sim's "A Christmas Carol" or "Scrooge" as it's sometimes titled here in the U.S. is FABULOUS. Try to get the version where one side has the original black & white version; the other side has it colorized, & although I usually take a dim view of old black & white films artificially "colorized", they did a really nice job on this one.
