Quotes

Clergyman: A man that is born of woman hath but a short time to live and is full of misery. He cometh up and is cut down like a flower.


Goofs

There is no entry in an 1843 Register of Death that would require the signature of Ebenezer Scrooge. There is no space for a witness or next of kin and all information would have been entered by a registrar or clergyman making the opening scene factually incaccurate. In truth, Stewart, who was merely following the opening lines of the original book, was not to blame for this. The fault lies with Charles Dickens who wrote 'The register of his burial was signed by the clerk, the undertaker and the chief mourner' and this may be traced to lack of knowledge on behalf of the author who, aside from signing his own marriage register (a much more detailed pro forma) would have not have come into contact with the registers which were normally kept locked away in the parish chest.


Alternate Versions

Although the opening credit sequence is basically the same, the typeface used for the sequence in the "letterboxed" version is entirely different. In this version, the credits are printed entirely in capital letters.
