The remakes (and adaptations) can be found in:

Theatre
Films
Musical
Opera
Radio
Television
Animated
Parody
and even
Novels
IMO the 1984 "A Christmas Carol" (George C. Scott) and 1970's "Scrooge" (Albert Finney) were the best productions of A Christmas Carol.

DYK There are streets in Washington, D.C., named after all 50 US states, and
there is an annual, "50 States Ride" an urban adventure by bicycle, taking riders for a 62-mile ride down all 50 state-named streets of the District and going through all 8 wards of the city. The 13 Colonies Ride is a 15-mile downtown DC bike ride on the streets named after the original 13 colonies.

So how is it used as a vowel in "Jersey?"

It is true that the letter "y" can be used as a "vowel," but it is a consonant.

Quote:
In general, the Y is a consonant when the syllable already has a vowel. Also, the Y is considered a consonant when it is used in place of the soft J sound, such as in the name Yolanda or Yoda. In the names Bryan and Wyatt, the Y is a vowel, because it provides the only vowel sound for the first syllable of both names.Jan 28, 2011

How can it be an consonant when it's not pronounced?

DYK- The rule "I" before "E", except after "C" has at least 98 words that break that rule.

Actually, I think I have to stand corrected.

The "y" in Jersey was most likely originally pronounced as a "j" sound and used as a consonant.

DYK In 1923, jockey Frank Hayes won a race at Belmont Park in New York despite being dead — he suffered a heart attack mid-race, but his body stayed in the saddle until his horse crossed the line for a 20–1 outsider victory!

you mean the best out of the ones you've seen.

The best ones that I've seen are the ones with Alistair Sim, Patrick Stewart, George C. Scott, Albert Finney and Mr. Magoo. Oh and also Mickey Mouse.
