Scrooge was designed as a follow-up to 1968's Oliver!, the Oscar-winning musicalization of Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist. The umpteenth musical version of Dickens' 1843 novelette A Christmas Carol, Scrooge features several sprightly Leslie Bricusse songs, including the bona fide hit "Thank You Very Much." Buried under mounds of latex, Albert Finney is Ebenezer Scrooge. The Three Ghosts who turn the miserly Scrooge's life around on Christmas Eve are portrayed by Edith Evans (Past), Kenneth More

Even Scrooge's fingernails are dirty, and while I don't think that Dickens intended to equate greed with unwashed hands, he probably would not have objected.
Scrooge works very nicely on its intended level and the kids sitting near me seemed to be having a good time.
[Finney is] the only element of this production that is really up to much good... the film lacks energy or dramatic thrust.
Director Ronald Neame's well-paced film captures the period beautifully, and the acting is superb, with Finney and Alec Guinness, as Marley's ghost, real standouts.
Thank you very much - for this perennial holiday delight.
Lovely. Even better than the Henry Winkler version.
One of the more delightful versions
