Factual error: At the early stages of the movie, Scrooge is talking to a man who owes him money. Scrooge mentions the August Bank Holiday. Bank holidays were not introduced until 1871, after the period in which A Christmas Carol/Scrooge is set - around 1835 (Charles Dickens, the author of the book, died in 1870).Jeff Walker
Ghost of Christmas Present: There is never enough time to do or say all the things that we would wish. The thing is to try to do as much as you can in the time that you have. Remember Scrooge, time is short, and suddenly, you're not there any more.
Question: Near the end, when Scrooge is in the toy shop buying lots of toys, the shopkeeper has a shocked look on his face throughout, especially at the bit where Scrooge asks how much all the things are all together. Is it shock because Scrooge is suddenly nice, shock because Scrooge is buying up most of the shop and he's got to add it all up in his head quick, or both?
