"The Alastair Sim version from 1951 – this is the classic telling of the story, and many people’s favourite. It loses points with me though, for being called ‘Scrooge’ and for changing the ending. In this one Scrooge takes the turkey and gifts directly to the Cratchit house on Christmas morning, whereas in the book he spends the afternoon with his nephew and sends the turkey anonymously." - Gerald Dickens

I've believe Mr. Dickens is mistaken about this. I've seen the Alistair Sim version countless times. Scrooge spends the afternoon with his nephew and sends the turkey to the Cratchit house anonymously. That's why he, "Must have a label. A label, label, label, label, label, label, label." :D
