This is one of many attempts at bringing Scrooge to the screen. 1922 was still in the midst of the silent film genre. While the film is missing parts because of time and erosion. It's still worth noting that it tries to maintain a faithful attempt to the Charles Dickens's story. I would have liked to have known who played the nephew and Bob Cratchit. Of course, the missing scenes may have been more compelling but it can't be helped. The film is only about 10 minutes in my DVD version from the Scrooge diamond anniversary collection of the 1951 classic. Still, it's worth watching for the 10 minutes to see how music, visuals, and acting appeared on screen. The Scrooge here is very good in his performance.
