Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Jane's boss' name in this movie is Mr Jorkin. Ebenezer's Scrooge's boss' name is also Mr. Jorkin in the 1951 version of The Christmas Carol starring Alistar Sims. The name is too specific for this to be a coincidence. Obviously, this was a reference to the older movie. See more »
