Finney's performance as cold-hearted Scrooge is a professional high-water mark. Full Review

If Charles Dickens were alive today, he would wish he had written Scrooge instead of A Christmas Carol. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- 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. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- 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.

Rating: 6/10 -- [Finney is] the only element of this production that is really up to much good... the film lacks energy or dramatic thrust. Full Review

Product Description:

Albert Finney shines as the title character in this musical version of Charles Dickens' timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, a lonely miser who is visited on Christmas Eve by three spirits who teach him lessons of love and giving. Fun choreography, rich set design, memorable songs, and a distinguished supporting cast (led by Sir Alec Guinness as Jacob Marley's ghost) lend considerable clout to this perennial favorite.

Plot Synopsis:

A musical re-telling of Charles Dickens' Christmas classic about the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, who's forced to face his unpleasant past, present and future via three ghosts. As a result, Scrooge undergoes a major transformation, and his Christmas spirit is restored. Songs include "The Beautiful Day," "Thank You Very Much," and "A Christmas Carol."

"The" Best Christmas Carol version Movie Lover: from Indian Wells, CA US -- December, 5, 2008

I agree with others who have stated this is one of the best, except that I think it is THE best Christmas Carol/Scrooge movie. I remember seeing this movie in the theater when I was younger and we had the "LP record." We would play it at Christmas and a lot of the songs became standards for our family. When the movie came out on VHS, I showed it to my kids who love it and it continues to be a traditional watch for the holidays for the next generation of my family. Albert Finney is the best of all Scrooges and does a wonderful job as both a young man and an old Scrooge with the makeup being so extraordinary. The songs are just great and the acting superb. You can not help but cry at the end when he "talks" to Marley at his door saying that he is going to have dinner "with his family." A must for every household!

The Best Christmas Carol Adaptation Movie Lover: from Hiawatha, IA -- May, 22, 2007

This is perhaps the best film version of the Dickens classic. The movie takes a few minor liberties with the story, but they do not hinder the film in the slightest.
The songs are moving and memorable, both as musicals go and as holiday music. The special effects are outstanding also making this one of the best Gothic ghost stories ever filmed.
The film succeeds the most though as Albert Finney (in his finest role) and company bring forth the true spirit of the Dickens story and the Christmas Season. Not to be missed!
