    Comments about this product:

    I listen to the song, "I Like Life" to cheer myself when I feel down, it works wonders! The whole movie is great, especially the ending. Scrooge is well-developed to the point I felt I understood him like never before, which made his redemption from himself extra sweet!

      For my money, this is the best version of A Christmas Carol. It is a musical and I love the songs. And the ending is so happy, it really speaks to Scrooge's redemption and transformation. A perfect movie for Christmas Eve or Christmas afternoon.

          I adore Dickens' Christmas Carol and I have many different versions of the movie in my collection, but Albert Finney's Scrooge is the BEST! For me it's just not Christmas without this movie. I find myself singing "Thank you Very Much..." every time I think of this movie. The music is engaging and fun.

            I consider this the musical version of the tale of an old miser transformed. It is the sing-a-long version on a par with Alistair Sims Christmas Carol. It's wonderful!!

                Comments about this product:

                I was introduced to this movie by a beloved 7th grade teacher. I remember as a teen encountering it on television during the season with grand, deep cathedral bells chiming at the start and end of commercial breaks. Those bells are the only thing missing from a wonderful adaptation of A Christmas Carol. Despite being a musical, Scrooge has all the somber overtones of a ghost story as well as the high spirited mood of Christmases past. The deviations from the original story are not intrusive and provide a chance for a lovely summer scene with Ebby as a young man. I adore the music and the dance numbers and cherish this movie as a top five favorite of all Christmas movies. Sir Alec Guinness is excellent as Marley.
