Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Effective adaptation of Charles Dickens novel, well acted by Reginald Owen and the rest of the cast."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"A great and eternally heart-warming film that can stand an appreciative viewing every year through every decade."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Edwin L. Marin robustly directs the Charles Dickens classic."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Solid version of the story, but eclipsed by the 1951 film."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"A gentle, less scary version of the classic."
‑ Scott G. Mignola, Common Sense Media
"The movie is nothing if not sincere, which goes a long way in a sentimental tale like this one."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Second best version of holiday must-see."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Although slightly corn-ball, this 1938 production...should appeal to fans of old-fashioned Hollywood-style filmmaking."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"Most viewers will still remember other versions of the film more readily, but this is one worth seeking out 'round holiday time."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"This is a timeless ode to Dikie- Look for the Barrymore version too..."
‑ Emily Blunt, Blunt Review
