The Book

The 1984 version of A Christmas Carol is based on the classic tale by Charles Dickens. There are many book versions of A Christmas Carol and each have a different cover, but recently the original tale was released with another new cover, a blue cover that has England in the background and the figure of Ebenezer Scrooge at the front. I was very excited at seeing this book with this particular cover and bought it right away. I have placed this image and this page here because Ebenezer Scrooge on the cover of this book version is the Ebenezer Scrooge portrayed by George C. Scott. The image of Ebenezer is straight from the cover of the DVD of the 1984 version (you can check the cover in the A Christmas Carol summary page of this fansite). I thought that this was really neat, and I understand why they would have chosen this Ebenezer, because in my opinion the 1984 version is a really great and powerful version, and in a way George C. Scott is Ebenezer. I also just thought it was really neat.
