This movie was excellent as a modern reminder that the Dicken's Classic, "A Christmas Carol" is still alive and well in this modern era. A heart- felt movie reminding us the joy of Christmas needs to be with us the whole year round. The acting is superb and traditional in every sense! This movie reaches to all, provoking the conscientious of human dignity and respect for our fellow man. One can simply tell the actors really got into their roles, ensuring this would be a great Christmas Classic. Bravo for the making of the "An American Christmas Carol". I can only assume Mr. Winkler who stared in this role feels this is one of his best works, defining the role as Ebenezer Scrooge.

Not enough people ever gave this one a chance, but it should be considered one of the better versions of &quot;A Christmas Carol&quot; out there.<br/><br/>Why did it fail? Well, who wanted to see &quot;Fonzie&quot; play Scrooge back in 1979? I must admit that I did not like this movie the first time I saw it either, but it grew on me, as any good movie does. Henry Winkler plays Depression era &quot;Bennidict Slade&quot; (what an inventive American equivalent for &quot;Ebenezer Scrooge&quot;!), a rich businessman that started out as a delinquent orphan that was adopted by a kind man he unwittingly ends up putting out of business in his pursuit of greed. The &quot;Depression Era&quot; skin put on this movie makes it all the more gray, bleak and believable.<br/><br/>One thing that hurt this movie was that it doesn&#39;t have as much of a &quot;feel good&quot; ending as the usual &quot;Scrooge&quot; versions, but I rank this one high because it has my absolute favorite ending of any version of the &quot;Scrooge&quot; genre.<br/><br/>Naturally, I can&#39;t spoil the ending, only to say that Slade has more fun surprising people with his new found attitude, knowing just how shocked everyone will be, than any Scrooge movie I&#39;ve seen. It makes a fun difference. And his surprise for &quot;Tiny Tim&quot;, very well done.<br/><br/>One annoying distraction, the &quot;Ghost of Christmas Future&quot; is portrayed by a black man wearing gold chains, dressed in 1979 fashions and listens to disco music. Their &quot;Ghost of the Future&quot; jumped a little too far ahead, and is comical by todays standards.<br/><br/>But this is a great version, and if you are bored to death with endless variations of &quot;A Christmas Carol&quot; where you know the story blindfolded, then I highly recommend you give this one a chance. You&#39;ll like it as long as you don&#39;t try and compare it to A.C.C., looking for places where they changed the story.

I&#39;m going to start of by saying that the &quot;Fonz&quot; from Happy Days is my all-time favorite TV character from my all-time favorite show. I&#39;ll also put out there that i got to meet Henry Winkler in person a few years back. That being said i remember fondly back in 1979 watching An American Christmas when it premiered on TV. Henry Winkler was at the height of his popularity then and i couldn&#39;t wait to see him in a new Christmas movie around the holiday season. Myself being all of 12 years old at the time i loved Henry Winkler in his &quot;Scrooge&quot; type role and the depression era setting. As others have stated the story has been changed slightly for an American setting and the ending a little differently done. But for me those are strong points that separate this version from other versions. That&#39;s why it&#39;s called &quot;An American Christmas Carol&quot; and not just &quot;A Christmas Carol&quot; because of it&#39;s American spin on things. For those looking it&#39;s been released on Blu Ray and DVD and you can probably find it online or locally for a pretty reasonable price. For fans or someone looking for something new they haven&#39;t seen give &quot;An American Christmas Carol&quot; a shot. This reviewer gives two thumbs up for &quot;The Fonz&quot; and if you don&#39;t agree you can &quot;Sit On It&quot; ! (Just some Happy Days humor for you.....Happy Holidays !)
