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.
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.
Ebenezer: What do you want with me?
Jacob Marley: Much.
Ebenezer: You see that toothpick?
Jacob Marley: I do.
Ebenezer: But you're not looking at it.
Jacob Marley: Yet I see it, notwithstanding.
Ebenezer: Well, then, I'll just swallow this and be tortured by a legion of hobgoblins, all of my own creation! It's all humbug, I tell you, humbug.
Question: Is there a complete version of the song Barbara Allen from this movie? I think this version is the best I've ever heard.
