"What the DICKENS have they done to Scrooge?"

"A Christmas Carol was always meant to be sung!"

"What the dickens have they done to Scrooge?... They've put him in a big, big musical."



Scrooge is a 1970 musical film adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic 1843 story, A Christmas Carol. It was filmed in London, directed by Ronald Neame, and starred Albert Finney in the title role. The film's musical score was composed by Leslie Bricusse, and arranged and conducted by Ian Fraser. With eleven musical arrangements interspersed throughout (all retaining a traditional British air about them), the award-winning motion picture is a faithful musical retelling of the original, with one exception noted below. The film received limited praise, but Albert Finney won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Musical/Comedy in 1971.

The film received four Academy Award nominations. It is the only live-action version of the story to be nominated for Oscars.
