Dickens! You Magnificent Bastard! I read your Book!

I really like the George C. Scott version of A Christmas Carol. These was nothing whiny about Scott's portrayal of Ebenezer Scrooge.

When THIS guy came alone in 2000, you'd have thought he was channeling George C. Scott!

But with Scott I couldn't help but think of a more famous role he played......

...and this scene... when I think Scott, I think Patton even when he is playing Scrooge.


  1. Cheney and Scot now there is who would have played Cheney in a movie. George C Scott was an Actor - Kinda like Clint Eastwood (Outlaw Josey Wales) or John Wayne (Mclintock) Rugged and superb. Sean Connery is another one that got better with age. Even Harrison Ford - Get off my plane!

  2. Too bad Scott used to smack around Ava Gardner. He's still an icon.

  3. I'm all about the Alstair Sims version of Christmas Carol. Wish that GCS had done some crusader pictures though.
