Christmas Carol: 60th Anniversary Diamond Edition (Blu-ray + DVD) (1951) $10.99

http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Caro...0155522&sr=1-2

Good price at Amazon but currently shows shipping in 1 to 3 months.

Hope there is not a problem with this release. Not available in store at Best Buy. Online Best Buy has it on back order. Doesn't seem to be offered at Barnes and Noble, Target, or Walmart. They have the version that was released last year. At least that is the cover that is displayed on their order pages.

Update 11/2: Shipping estimate 5 to 8 weeks. At least it is going in the right direction.

2nd Update 11/2: In stock

Great timing for the manufacturers if they ship in January.

I bought the previous Blu-ray/DVD combo and was generally (but not entirely) content with the quality of the Blu-ray (at least in comparison to earlier DVDs, if nothing else, except for the little glitchy bits) and it's bonus features, most of which dated from earlier editions, but this new package seems to have an abundance of supplemental riches that are not only relevant but long overdue. Looks to be well over 2 hours of video-based features on the Blu-ray, and another hour or two of video and audio material on the DVD. Looks promising overall . . .

I didn't have the original release so I jumped on this when I saw the $10.99 price point and was disappointed when I heard the release was 12/20. Glad that ended up being false and it will be here well before Christmas. This is my favorite film version of the story.

I agree with everything you said. And my thanks to the OP for pointing it out.

I wonder if Disney has a problem with them calling it the "Diamond Edition".

Maybe, but they can't really do anything... 60 years is considered the "Diamond Year" according to traditional wedding anniversary gift giving, so they can back up that it has nothing to do with Disney.

I picked it up so thanks for posting, Classic Films! I consider this the definitive film adaptation, though the George C. Scott version runs a close second. Both are on Blu and worth owning.
