Scrooge (1970) w/ Dr. Rebecca L. Salois

Dr. Rebecca L. Solois, of the Why Do We Read This? podcast, is our guest as we talk about the 1970 Ronald Neame film, Scrooge for our SPECIAL HOLIDAY EPISODE. We talk about why this 4 time Oscar nominated film resonates with Rebecca over any other adaptation of the Dickens classic, we cover some of the differences between the book and the film, and we talk about how the lessons of A Christmas Carol are still relevant today. We also talk about Leslie Bricusse, who created all the songs for this musical adaptation, and we touch on some other famous films he wrote music for. We finally talk about the legendary stars of the film, Albert Finney and Alec Guinness, who would become the iconic Daddy Warbucks of Annie and Obi-Won Kenobi from the original Star Wars trilogy respectively.
