Bah Humbug!!!! The Scrooge Nobody Mentions

Updated on December 16, 2008


I must mention a movie I believe is overlooked as one of the best theatrical versions of the Christmas classic "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. That movie is Scrooge with Albert Finney as the miser-turned-philanthropist.

The 1970 musical - yes, I said musical - is my personal favorite version of "A Christmas Carol". Although I am not a huge fan of the musical genre (exceptions: Grease, South Park: The Movie, Wizard of Oz, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory [with Gene Wilder - please do not confuse with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory starring Johnny Depp...that one sucked!]) this movie is fun to watch and sing-a-long to.

Thank You Very Much

I Like Life

It's Okay...Sing!!!

I challenge you to watch this movie and not find yourself belting out the tunes right along with characters.

Most notable is the Oscar-nominated sarcastic tune "Thank You Very Much". This song is sung during the Ghost of Christmas' Yet To Come segment in which the character sings the song while dancing atop of Scrooge's casket while Scrooge (not seeing the casket) mistakenly thinks the song is sung in tribute to him.

Other great songs in the movie: "I Hate People", "I Like Life" and "Happiness".

Have Fun...Watch Scrooge!

This holiday season, try to catch this movie on the tube.  Have with friends and family!  Pour the egg nog (rum included), sing the songs, get up and dance.  It's okay to look dumb as long as you have fun doing it.

      Blowballs:  EVERYONE knows? You sure are real sure of yourself. A little tip...never say absolutes like that; it makes you look stupid.

      PS...Charlie and the Chocolate Factory sucks! Only homos like that version.

      Everyone knows Johnny Depp's Chocolate movie was just fine in it's own respect. He did a great job. Not that it can be compared at all with the is a solid movie on it's own plateau. What's wrong with you? (well, coming from a homosexual who's not into musicals....but then goes and lists a plethora of them that he's in love with, what else can we expect, right?) Damn, I'm mean.

      My vault is as deep as Al Capone's and thankfully much more full.

      Nice hub. Our favorite is the Christmas Carol with George C. Scott. It's a tradition every year in our family to watch at Christmas.
