Starring Brian O'Halloran, Jeff Anderson, Marilyn Ghigliotti, Jason Mewes, and Kevin Smith himself, this film informed generations of filmmakers that if you want to make a film bad enough, you can (and it can find an audience too)!

Episode 26: Scrooge (1970)

scroogeOne of the most christmas-y stories of all times is Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," and one of Jeff's favorite stories. In this episode, Buddy and Chad let Jeff pick his favorite version of the story on film, and that turns out to be 1970's "Scrooge!" Directed by Ronald Neame, adapted for the screen by Leslie Bricusse, and starring Albert Finney, Edith Evans, Kenneth More, Michael Medwin, David Collings, and Sir Alec Guiness, this is the story brought to life differently as a musical, adding in tunes happy ("Thank You Very Much"(, sad ("You, You"), and creepy ("See the Phantoms"). All together, this is one of the most affecting versions of the story yet to be put on film!
