If I wasn’t absolutely in love with Albert Finney for all his amazing roles; as real life lover to Audrey Hepburn in Two for the Road, the delicious Tom Jones, or heck even as the old, ornery uncle to Russell Crowe in A Good Year, I wouldn’t be able to come to this film with as much love as I do. It’s difficult to imagine a singing Scrooge in the tattered and poverty stricken streets of London, but somehow, Albert Finney pulls it off.  As a musical made when musicals were fizzling, they really give it all they got in this one.
