TCM has the Alistair Sim version of A Christmas Carol tonight at 8:00. Widely regarded as the best film version of the classic conversion story, I haven’t seen it in the last few years though it had been shown regularly on local stations as “Scrooge” not too long ago. Not sure how the licensing works, but glad it’s back and on TCM where it belongs. Meanwhile they’ve had repeated showings of the 1938 Hollywood version with Reginald Owen which I remember from childhood but hadn’t seen in years until I got cable. It’s not bad, but seeing it again I was struck by its emphasis on religion in contrast to the British film’s harsher depiction of the corrupt heartlessness of business, i.e. capitalism.

Panic in needle park was on one of the movie channels last night. A junky couple in NYC 1971. Pacino still looks like a kid at 31 and a chillingly natural performance from Kitty Winn. Link here.
