The Original Scrooge in Color for the First Time! Also Includes Newly Restored Black-and-White Version!
|In this original film adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, Sir Seymour Hicks gives a riveting performance as Ebenezer Scrooge. Scrooge is a mean old miser who wants nothing to do with Christmas, harshly rejection the company and well wishes of his fellow man. But on this Christmas Eve, Scrooge's former partner Jacob Marley, an invisible but forceful ghostly presence, visits Scrooge to warn him that his time is running short. Throughout the long, cold night, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future appear to Scrooge, taking him on a journey into the very spirit and magic of the Christmas holiday.|
Editor's NoteAn early English film interpretation of "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens in which miser Scrooge changes his ways after being visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve.
