Reviews:  A mixed bag as variations on "A Christmas Carol" go, this 1970 British musical tells the usual story of Scrooge (Albert Finney) and his spirits on Christmas Eve, although the whole thing is set to music by Leslie Bricusse. Except for Finney's feisty and involved performance, however, there isn't much to recommend this. The songs, which absorb so much of the evolving story line and emotions, are not all that good. Plenty of support, however, from the likes of Roy Kinnear ("Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory") and Dame Edith Evans ("Tom Jones"), the handsome production is directed by veteran Ronald Neame ("The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie").
