Made for television version of the Charles Dickens classic of the same name. Ebenezer Scrooge is a hard-nosed, single-minded businessman in Victorian London. He has disowned his only living relative - his nephew Fred - and generally treats everyone he meets with extreme contempt. He hates Christmas, only cares about making money and only gives his clerk, Bob Cratchit, the day off. However, he is taught the true meaning and spirit of Christmas by three ghosts who show him his own past and present. He is also shown what the future holds for him if he doesn't change his behavior.

This is, perhaps, the only version of ACC in which Scrooge wears dress-slacks, a dress-shirt and a vest (with an Alistair Cooke
-type smoking jacket)...instead of merely his nightgown, slippers and cap. (Rumor has it that George C. Scott
openly reeled at the very thought of portraying Scrooge under such conditions...especially in mid-winter England.) In the book Scrooge is wearing his shirt, pants, vest, a dressing gown and slippers. Scott's clothing is very close to the book. See more

Uncle Ebenezer, this is my wife Janet. Janet this is Uncle Ebenezer.
It's a pleasure.
More like a surprise wouldn't you say?
Well that too.
That's quite true. Quite honestly it is a surprise. At least yesterday, you made it quite clear, it seemed to me at least, that you had no intention of accepting my annual invitation.
I made other things clear too didn't I, Fred? That Christmas was a humbug - a waste of time and money. A false and commercial festival, devoutly to be ignored.
Yes, basically ...
