Where is Alistair Sim??


Recommended Posts

It's been mentioned many times that TCM simply can't just say "let's run a certain film" and then do it. It involves negotiating for the broadcast rights and in some cases bidding against other channels, sometimes years in advance. A lot of times, for whatever reason, a film is simply not available. It doesn't matter that it may be out on DVD, those rights are entirely different.


I haven't seen the Alastair Sim version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL listed on any channel so it makes me think it wasn't released to TV this year. My guess, and it's only a guess, is that it's being held back because the film has had a restoration and was recently rereleased on DVD. Perhaps this was done to encourage sales. I don't know if you ever buy movies, but this one is well worth getting on DVD.


Merry Christmas!
