Scrooge (1970) Rated G

A musical retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. Starring Albert Finney, Edith Evans, and Kenneth More.

This is the quintessential film of the classic Dickens’ tale. Finney is a joy to watch as Scrooge, who then has a change of heart. The singing isn’t bad, and it helps the story along, which is a plus. Overall, this film really brings Dickens’ tale to life. The ghosts and the sequences of past, present, and future Christmases are enchanting and show us the bright and doom of the characters’ lives. The cinematography makes the film and shows us it’s heart and doom. It’s not the best film, but it is one that brings Dickens’ work to life, and for that, it is worth a watch.
