A Christmas Carol
- Well, with one of the punters backing the Muppets and another Mr. Magoo, I
can see that textual fidelity has been lost in the shuffle :) But, of
course, a story that has become mythic (in the Lewisian sense) can tolerate
I agree with people on the Pemberley.com Virtual Views board who thought the
Ghost of Christmas Future was a disappointment in the Stewart version - it
looks like a very large Jawa. The luminous eyes are not in Dickens - in his
text, the =hand= is the only visible part of this spectre. Christmases Past
and Present, though, were just right, as were most of the SFX.
Does anybody know which was the role "Mr Foster," played by Edward
Petherbridge? I can't imagine who that would be. Seems to have been a
character in some of the early scenes.
- Yes, I noted that it's back on this Thursday eving (12/11) at 9.30 CST,
and will be on again over the weekend.

The show was on TNT, permiering Dec. 5. I think they do re-broadcast
their original series; they showed it three times on the night of its
premiere. Check local listings.
