Las Vegas Review-Journal
Rating: 2/5 -- An overly made-up Albert Finney stars in this adaptation of the Dickens tale and gives the impression he'd be happier somewhere other than on the palpably phoney Shepperton sets. Full Review
Rating: 2.5/4 -- Unlike the great musicals, where you might find yourself humming a tune a few days later, with Scrooge, you'll be lucky if you remember the name of one of the songs a few hours later. Full Review
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
Antagony & Ecstasy
A misbegotten musical adaptation of Dickens' much too perennial tale. 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.
New York Times
Rating: 4/5 -- Lovely. Even better than the Henry Winkler version.
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.
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."
- Filmed in Panavision and Technicolor.
