Maude Marley: [Appearing in a flash of Light] Ta Da! I always did like a big entrance, didn't I?
[light fades]
Maude Marley: How's tricks, Ebenita?
Ms. Ebenita Scrooge: Maude?
Maude Marley: You haven't said a word about my outfit.
Ms. Ebenita Scrooge: [laughing to herself] Oh, it can't be Maude. She's dead. I buried her.

Maude Marley: Now I can't.

Another song for Christmas
16 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It amazes me how many ways a simple story like Dicken's "A Christmas Carol" can be interpreted. We have the pleasure of watching Cicely Tyson (Idlewild, A Lesson Before Dying) in another strong role.

John Korty, who directed Ms. Tyson in The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, again directs her as Ms. Ebenita Scrooge. Veteran writer John McGreevey interprets the familiar tale.

Katherine Helmond ("Soap", "Whose the Boss") was funny as Marley, and Michael Beach ("Third Watch", Short Cuts) was super as her nephew.

It was a different twist on a familiar story, told from an African-American perspective, and it really warmed the heart.

Of course, you all know how it ends.
