If you're looking for a fun holiday movie, try Bill Murray's Scrooged. That's a non traditional version of a Christmas Carol. If you'd like another traditional version, watch the one with George C Scott. That was very close to the book. Extremely well done. Do you like musicals ? Try Scrooge with Albert Finney. Also excellent.

If you want to have some fun, try a Muppet's Christmas Carol with Michael Caine.

PS - During the 1950s, movies could be in black and white or color. Depended on the budget of the picture. Even TV shows from the 1960s could still be in black and white. Color TVs weren't cheap. so, B/W was much more common.

However many there are, I was disappointed that they didn't show Marlo Thomas in her version of A Wonderful Life. November Christmas and a Dog Named Christmas, are exceellent shows.

There are actually 200 versions of Christmas Carol on film.

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.
