  • The Dickens classic is interpreted by comedian-impressionist Rich Little in a very unique way: He plays all the major characters in the film! His vast repertoire of characters are employed to act out the characters in this much-loved story. W.C. Fields is the sourest Scrooge you'll ever see. Paul Lynde as poor Bob Cratchit, Richard Nixon as Marley's Ghost! and Humphrey Bogart as the ghost of Christmas past! Among the other 14 "famous faces" Rich uses are Johnny Carson, Groucho Marx, Edith Bunker, Truman Capote, Laurel and Hardy and more! Rich Little is at his best...he even sings some songs while in the character of W.C. Fields!
