The "show tunes" may not be memorable, but the rest of this film is. This was broadcast a few time during the 70's on TV and since that was the only time I saw this, I never realized how heavily editted it was for TV. Even after Alec Guiness won new recognition after Star Wars, an entire scene with him was never shown on TV, and we didn't have VCRs then. That scene blows my mind because it has nothing to do with the Dicken's story, but is Scrooge and Marley in Hell! and Marley is kind of ticked Scrooge Bah Humbugged him earlier. I still love that this is the only Christmas Carol to feature the hearse, which is just an amazing addition to this film.
