Scrooge on Blu-ray

Scrooge was designed as a follow-up to 1968's Oliver, the Oscar-winning musicalization of Charles Dickens' OLIVER TWIST. The umpteenth musical version of Dickens' 1843 novelette a CHRISTMAS CAROL, SCROOGE is blessed with several sprightly Leslie Bricusse songs, including the bonafide hit "Thank You Very Much". Once more buried under mounds of latex, Albert Finney is perfection itself as Ebeneezer Scrooge, proving as effective as a young (un-made up) man as the old skinflint we've grown to love. The Three Ghosts who turn the miserly Scrooge's life around on Christmas Eve are portrayed by Edith Evans (Past), Kenneth More (Present) and Paddy Stone (Yet to Come). Our favorite among the huge, predominantly British supporting cast is Sir Alec Guinness as a fussy, slightly effeminate Marley's Ghost. Best of all, Finney performs his many songs live and not lip-synched to a pre-recording. Though it is overproduced to the hilt, and it's Technicolor photography tends to induce eyestrain, SCROOGE is more than satisfactory Yuletide entertainment.
