Doing my bit to perpetuate the Christmas Spirit, I purchased on DVD my favorite adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Entitled Scrooge, this musical version - which I originally saw for the first time when I was ten years old - features Albert Finney portraying the misanthropic Ebenezer, accompanied by a wonderful film score of memorable tunes performed by Ebenezer himself, the three ghosts, and a slew of chanting characters. Remember this:
Thank you very much!
That's the nicest thing that
anyone's ever done for me..."
Before you think I'm off my rocker, BUY this DVD and you'll know precisely what I'm talking about.
I love those narrow streets of nineteenth century England that are featured in this film. Snow covered and intimate, I long for a setting like the one in this film.
Hope you enjoy this holiday Bah Humbug!!
