Trivia

A majority of this film's cast are trained Shakespearean actors, and have appeared in numerous stage, television and film productions of the bard's work. Coincidentally, Dickens himself was a fan of Shakespeare, and even appeared in amatuer productions of his plays for charity. In the first few pages of A Christmas Carol, Dickens also references Shakespeare's tragedy Hamlet, comparing Jacob Marley's ghost in his novella to the ghost of Hamlet's father. See more »
