Running Time: 120 mins.
Genre: Adaptation, Drama, Family, Fantasy, Period

In this lavishly acclaimed, and equally lavish production of the Dickens classic that has been placed on a mantle beside the great film versions of the perennial story, George C. Scott's interpretation of Ebenezer Scrooge, mined for its riches and winning the actor an Emmy nomination, gives the character a Freudian touch with sequences of Scrooge's past life (in Roger O. Hirson's spirited script) unexplored in most of the earlier filmed versions, of which there were at least eleven, dating back to 1901.
