A Christmas Carol

1999

   



PLOT SUMMARY

In 1840s London, Ebenezer Scrooge is a mean-spirited businessman who receives his terrifying comeuppance. One Christmas Eve, he is visited by the ghost of Jacob Marley, his dead business partner. Marley foretells that Scrooge will be visited by three spirits, each of whom will attempt to show Scrooge the error of his ways. Will Scrooge reform his ways in time to celebrate Christmas?


REVIEW

A much filmed story of A Christmas Carol. This is my favourite version apart from some god awful child acting. Patrick Stewart on the other hand is brilliant. Some of the scenes for The Ghost Of Christmas Past were filmed at Kirby Hall in Corby where my son got married.

Match Report

League One


 

Shrewsbury Town    2

 


 

Portsmouth    0

 


It was not exactly the Nightmare before Christmas.

But Pompey were certainly lacking festive cheer after individual errors saw their fine run of form brought to an end at high-flying Shrewsbury.

Things appeared to be going the visitors’ way when Luke McGee saved Shaun Whalley’s penalty following a lifeless first half.

But Whalley and substitute Stefan Payne both capitalised on sloppy defending to maintain the Shrews’ magnificent home record.

The game began in cautious fashion and neither side really looked like scoring in a scrappy opening 45 minutes.

Pompey’s three bookings were arguably the most noteworthy incidents, although the Blues could perhaps feel aggrieved to see Matt Clarke, Jamal Lowe and Brandon Haunstrup’s names all taken.

There were a few balls pumped into Shrewsbury’s box, but nothing to trouble Dean Henderson between the sticks.

More concerning was a long-range attempt by Kennedy on 19 minutes, with the keeper managing to push the ball clear after it bounced awkwardly in front of him.

Not too much was happening at the other end of the pitch, although Clarke had to head away Alex Rodman’s curling effort.

And Christian Burgess then made a well-timed challenge inside the box to halt Carlton Morris’ path to goal.

But, with the game drifting towards the interval, neither stopper had realistically looked like conceding.

That almost changed in stoppage-time, though, as McGee showed good reactions after Whalley’s cross was diverted towards the net by an inadvertent Haunstrup deflection.


Half Time

Shrewsbury Town 0

Portsmouth 0


The first half had been forgettable – and Blues fans will be keen for the second period to also escape their memories.

Shrewsbury were given an excellent opportunity to break the deadlock soon after the restart when Christian Burgess lost the ball to Whalley.

He burst into the box and when McGee came charging from his line to deal with the danger, referee Darren Handley decided he took the man and not the ball.

It was Whalley who stepped up to take the spot-kick, only for his tame effort to be saved by the diving Blues keeper.

Pompey almost made him pay for his profligacy when Brett Pitman won a free-kick, but Henderson was equal to the skipper’s effort.

And it was the hosts who took the lead just before the hour mark when McGee tried to stop a deflected Jon Nolan effort from going out for a corner.

The keeper could not keep hold of the ball, however, and Whalley capitalised by sliding it into the net.

Jackett immediately made a double substitution, with Lowe and Kennedy making way for Oliver Hawkins and Kyle Bennett.

But the Blues were looking ragged after falling behind and McGee did well to beat Whalley to Carlton Morris’ threaded pass.

Conor Chaplin replaced Pitman in one last effort by Pompey to try to find a spark of magic and grab an equaliser.

Instead, Shrewsbury grabbed a late second goal, as Payne stole the ball from Clarke and found the target, despite McGee’s best efforts to keep it out.

Pompey kept plugging away – no doubt inspired by a noisy travelling army – but there was to be no Christmas miracle.

Stephanie Italia Ricci (born October 29, 1986) is a Canadian actress mostly known for playing “Emily Rhodes” in Designated Survivor.

Ricci made her major acting debut in 2007, in the American Pie direct-to-video film, Beta House. She then went on to have a recurring role on the Disney XD series Aaron Stone. Ricci also appeared in the music video “Hate” by Plain White T’s as the ex-girlfriend.

During 2009, Ricci began appearing in American productions with minor roles in How I Met Your Mother, House and Greek. During that same year she had a recurring role in the Comedy Central series Secret Girlfriend as Sasha. In 2010, she co-starred in the Cartoon Network live-action series Unnatural History as Maggie Winnock. She also appeared in a Clean & Clear commercial as herself. In 2011, she appeared in the short film Valediction.

In 2013, Ricci appeared in a small role in Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut film Don Jon. Also in 2013, she was cast in the lead role of April Carver in the ABC Family series Chasing Life. The series premiered in 2014. On October 2, 2015, ABC Family canceled Chasing Life after two seasons.

Ricci joined the cast of Supergirl in December 2015 as Siobhan Smythe (aka “Silver Banshee”) – the character transforms from Kara’s rival and CatCo mean girl to full-on villain. “I think they do a really good job with telling that story in a way that keeps her honest and doesn’t paint her as a one-dimensional villain,” Ricci says of her character. “You can see that there is still a good person somewhere in there; it’s just she’s choosing to put her away for now.” Ricci is no stranger to the DC universe. Her husband Robbie Amell played Firestorm on The Flash in season one, and Robbie’s cousin, Stephen Amell, is Oliver Queen on Arrow.

Since September 2016, Ricci has starred as Emily Rhodes in the ABC political drama Designated Survivor.
