This production has the first depiction of the tormented spirits who are shown to Scrooge by Marley. They are visible to Scrooge, but not the film's audience.


Marley's Ghost: Look well, Ebenezer Scrooge, for only you can see me.


As Cratchit enters a room to see his dead son Tiny Tim, a crew's middle finger can be seen slowly closing the door behind him.

Crazy Credits

Two different opening credits sequences have been created for this film. Both feature the same credits, and basically the same main title music, but they are designed differently. In the first, we see a man's hands take down a copy of the original novel "A Christmas Carol" from a bookshelf, and thumb through its pages, revealing the credits (almost exactly as in the opening credits for the 1951 film A Christmas Carol (1951), starring Alastair Sim). Many of the names are printed using the print type seen in first editions of Dickens, as in the opening credits of David Copperfield (1935). In the "alternative credits", the credits simply appear on what looks like a metal doorplate, in a very straightforward manner. This is the way they have usually been shown in television screenings of the film. The "alternative credits" version is the only one which shows which cast member played each character (shown at the end of the film). In the original credits, we see the names of the cast, but not the names of the characters they portray. The original opening credits are much more detailed than the ones shown in the second opening credits sequence.
