An Early Glimpse at Scrooge & Company
3 January 2002 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A miserable old miser, frightened & shamed into better behavior, learns to make his life A CHRISTMAS CAROL of good will towards men.

This version of Charles Dickens' 1843 classic is condensed into only a few minutes, hitting the highlights of Ebenezer Scrooge's astonishing reformation. Surprisingly, in such an extreme abridgment, the acting is quite good and the special effects - involving double exposures - well handled.

Al Kryszak provided the score for the video compilation A Christmas Past, in which this film appears.
