In this 1999 TNT version, surely one of the best adaptations made, Patrick Stewart's portrayal of Scrooge has to rival George C. Scott's from 1984. I think Scott's Scrooge is the one I remember. I haven't read Dickens's story in some time, but this TNT version seems to have made an effort to capture Dickens's time and tone. I would not be a bit surprised if much of the dialog was straight from the pages of Dickens.
|That's the legendary Joel Grey as the Ghost of Christmas Past|
This Christmas, let's remember the Scrooges among us. Those neighbors, coworkers, and even family members who live bitter, lonesome lives need to see the love and grace offered through us by the one who came to seek and to save us. It's never too late to accept Jesus' love, and it's never too soon to share it.
