Description by OLDIES.com:

Sir Seymour Hicks is Ebenezer Scrooge, a miser who lords over his poor employee Bob Cratchit and hates the joys that Christmas affords everyone but himself. After being exceptionally miserable at the office on Christmas Eve Day, Scrooge returns home to be haunted by three sprits who attempt to motivate a change in the old man's demeanor lest he continue on his current path and face almost certain eternal damnation.

Featuring a bravura performance from Seymour Hicks, delightful special effects, a gobbling "Ghost of Christmas Present" (Oscar Asche), a shadowy "Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come" (right out of Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1932 spook classic Vampyr) and a ghoulish gaggle of corpse scavengers, Scrooge is A Christmas Carol like you've never experienced it before!

Product Description:

Rating 5.0 Scrooge Movie Lover: from LEE GREEN, ENGLAND GB -- April, 17, 2013

This is a very good interpretation of "A Christmas Carol". Charles Dickens himself would have been pleased with this.
