Scrooge (5-Nov-1970)

Director: Ronald Neame

Writer: Leslie Bricusse

From novel: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Music and Lyrics by: Leslie Bricusse

Producer: Robert H. Solo

Keywords: Drama, Christmas

Lavish musical adaptation of A Christmas Carol. Miserly Ebenezer Scrooge receives a visit from the ghost of his former partner Jacob Marley, who informs him three spirits will visit him this evening. One of the better versions of this tale; Albert Finney is a masterful Scrooge, yet at the age of thirty-four. Received Oscar nominations for Best Costume Design, Best Set Decoration, Best Original Song "Thank You Very Much", and Best Original Song Score.
