Stubbornly refusing to believe in Christmas and to be separated from his inexhaustible wealth, the Victorian money lender and parsimonious recluse, Ebenezer Scrooge, can't be bothered with the poor and destitute at the most festive time of the year. Intent on spending the holy night alone, instead, the sceptical curmudgeon is visited by an unexpected and sympathetic friend, who will pave the way for the inevitable visitation of the otherworldly spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. But, what do the pale ghosts want? Can a wicked old miser admit the error in his ways, and embrace change? In the end, is Scrooge ready to love and be loved?
Alastair Sim (as Ebenezer Scrooge), Kathleen Harrison (as Mrs. Dilber), Mervyn Johns (as Bob Cratchit), Hermione Baddeley (as Mrs. Cratchit), Michael Hordern (as Jacob Marley)
