the Singing Scrooge


This 1970 musical was nominated for 4 Oscars and 5 Golden Globes. Terrific performance by a 34 year-old Albert Finney as the elderly Scrooge with great music, dancing, costumes, and sets. It’s a pretty lively interpretation of the story and good toe-tapping fun. Rated G/113 minutes.
