We just watched this tonight. If you think you don't need to see another version of "A Christmas Carol," think again. Unique and amazing musical adaptation. Ignore the technical limitations of the kinescope and enjoy the music, lyrics, book, and performances. It's astounding to think of a production on that scale being broadcast live with no editing and no retakes. If you know the musical only from the album, it's an even greater experience seeing the songs performed in context. This one is going to be a watch-it-every-year (or maybe more than once!) DVD. What great luck that they found a complete kinescope and produced a DVD so everyone can see it! It's really quite an experience.
