Scrooge Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

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).

Academy Awards

Scrooge received Academy Awards nominations for Art Direction/Set Decoration (Terry Marsh - Art Direction, Bob Cartwright - Art Direction, Pamela Cornell - Set Decoration), Costume Design (Margaret Furse), Music Scoring Awards (Best Original Song Score; Leslie Bricusse, Ian Fraser, Herbert Spencer) and Music Best Song (Leslie Bricusse - Music & Lyrics).
