Scrooge with Albert Finney

Scrooge is a wonderful musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' Christmas classic. A Christmas Carol has been filmed numerous times, but this is one of our favorites. The casting is perfect, with Albert Finney playing Scrooge as both the young and older man. We do get a kick out of some of the character and name confusion.

December the 25th:

The New York Times has a review. Roger Ebert has mixed feelings. DVDTalk says it's one of the best of the Christmas Carol adaptations. TCM and MSN have overviews.
