This song isn't specifically about Thanksgiving -- it's from Scrooge, the movie version of A Christmas Carol, after all.. But since the song is entirely about thanking people, it fits just fine. It also features a fave, but little-known actor here, Anton Rodgers, who my folks had seen earlier in London a supporting role in another Dickens show, the musical Pickwick and they still talked about him 50 years later. He sings and dances up a storm here with Albert Finney supporting him. This is the Oscar-nominated Best Song by Leslie Bricusse (who. as it happens, wrote the lyrics to Pickwick...), "Thank You Very Much."
