The journey that led to Charles Dickens' creation of "A Christmas Carol," a timeless tale that would redefine Christmas.
At 87 years old Christopher Plummer is the oldest actor to ever play Scrooge. In fact Scrooge is apparently elderly in the book while in the previous films Scrooge is played by various middle aged actors.
Towards the end of the film, Dickens views the family Christmas tree and remarks that since Prince Albert, the German-born husband (and cousin) of Queen Victoria had instituted the custom in England in 1840, they were bound to become popular. In fact, the first Christmas tree in England was erected at the behest of Queen Charlotte, the equally German-born wife of George III in 1800. Christmas trees had been fashionable in England since Dickens' childhood.
