This Week on TCM:

Alec Guiness is Marley's Ghost.
Tonight at 10:15 is SCROOGE with Albert Finney in the best version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL put to film-- forget that it's a musical version-- I hate musicals but I like this one.  Some great songs including I HATE PEOPLE.

Wednesday night at 10pm Barbara Stanwyck is a showgirl who gets mixed up with a bunch of college professors in the classic comedy BALL OF FIRE (1941).

The THIN MAN runs the gamut Thursday night-- you can watch all five of those great comedy/mysteries one after the other-- and most of them don't disappoint.  

On Friday night it's Christmas Noir with a pair of Raymond Chandler mysteries-- Lady in the Lake (1947) at 10 followed by MURDER MY SWEET (1944) at midnight-- What better way to ring in Xmas than with hard boiled Private Eye Philip Marlowe?

Christmas Eve Day has MEET JOHN DOE (1941) at 10:15am and MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET (1947) at 8pm.
