Scrooge: Thank You Very Much

One of the best renditions of Dickens' Christmas Carol is the 1970 musical adaptation entitled Scrooge starring Albert Finney. I remember watching it seated next to my brother on the living room couch. We were elementary school aged and were completely mesmerized by the film. There's only one word for it: BRILLIANT. It's a beloved Christmas tradition in our home. My favourite scene follows below, thank you very much!

    yes, my mother was an English/Humanities teacher so she forced us to watch movie adaptations of many classics (Wuthering Heights, Macbeth, A Christmas Carol, etc)

    And this version was absolutely one of the best childhood memories that I ever had.

    The music, the acting, the overall message are still as powerful today as back in 1981 when I first saw this movie

  2. Thank you for sharing your memories with us! I totally agree with you, watching it today, the film is just as powerful as it was back then. I think I saw it around the same time as you too. :)

  3. This is by far my favorite of all Christmas Carols. My family knows if I don't see this at least 2500 times between thanksgiving and new years, every year I'll be crushed. He is so cute even as a Scrooge you just want to hug his grumpy old bum and when he gets drunk and sings the Ministers cat. I never miss a laugh.
