A Christmas Carol

Visible crew/equipment: Towards the the end, when Scrooge wakes up in his bedroom on Christmas day and is elated to know he is still alive, he goes over and looks in the mirror twice. Both times you can see someone in the mirror reflection in the background, possibly holding a script.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where the younger Scrooge and Marley are addressing their business associates, Marley's hands keep changing their position between shots. When the scene shows the entire group, his hands are on either side of his lap with his thumbs hooked in his vest pockets. During the close-ups of he and Scrooge, his hands are clasped together on his lap.

Continuity mistake: When the Ghost of Christmas Present first meets Scrooge, his arm is on his knee, but the next shot his arm is raised.

Spirit of Christmas Present: You've never seen the like of me before, have you?
Ebenezer: Never, and I wish the pleasure had been indefinitely postponed.

Spirit of Christmas Past: And as your business prospered, Ebenezer Scrooge, a golden idol took possession of your heart, as Alice said it would.

Jacob Marley: I wear the chain I forged in life! I made it link by link and yard by yard! I gartered it on of my own free will and by my own free will, I wore it.
