25350 Yes, Albert Finney did a great version, but I think Alastair Sim's was, by far, more fantasatic in the role. I've seen the Seymour Hick's version and agree, for the time, it was a great movie adaptation of the book.

25350 Hello!

Yes, George C. Scott did a fabulous Scrooge, my all time favorite holiday flick, right there with It's a Wonderful Life. Patrick Stewart's version was superb as well and, would you believe it?, Henry Winkler's wasn't half bad. He brought a lot of poignancy to Scrooge's past.

25350 Oddly enough, would you believe he wrote Captains Curageous? That used to be madatory reading in my day for English Lit.

25350 OK, you're forgiven for putting Marryatt back--I would have to for King Arthur and Henry James! **grin**

Yes, yes, and yes! I have a copy of King Solomon's Mines from 1945 that I read over and over again. By any chance, have you ever read King's Own or Naval Officer by Captain Frederick Marryatt(sometimes spell marryat)? He was a popular English Author in the early 1800's who wrote entrancing tales of the sea from the naval view. Both of the stories I mention above I have in the 1837 version, unabridged and extremely fine print. Still just as fabulous to read now as they must have been nearly 200 years ago.

25350 Good Afternoon,

To sound like a total all and all out mega nerd and a little on the odd side due to my gender---I adore Edgar Rice Burroughs and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. John Carter of Mars, Tarzan, anything with Sherlock Holmes, etc. I can read them over and over again.

25350 My favorite, Nicholas Nickelby. I saw the film version on PBS and had to go by the two book series immediately. Fabulous tale but, why is it Dickens has the ability to make a person cry so darn much?
