Storyline

On Christmas Eve, an old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the spirit of his former partner, Jacob Marley. The deceased partner was in his lifetime as mean and miserly as Scrooge is now and he warns him to change his ways or face the consequences in the afterlife. Scrooge dismisses the apparition but the first of the three ghosts, the Ghost of Christmas Past, visits as promised. Scrooge sees those events in his past life, both happy and sad, that forged his character. The second spirit, the Ghost of Christmas Present, shows him how many currently celebrate Christmas. The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come shows him how he will be remembered once he is gone. To his delight, the spirits complete their visits in one night giving him the opportunity to mend his ways.

a little gem
9 August 2005 | by (maysville, ky) – See all my reviews

It is a shame that most people never get to see many of these wonderful silent films. Please, someone consider putting this great version of "A Christmas Carol" out on DVD. How wonderful it would be to see this version with some other silent Christmas films on a DVD for this Holiday season. Even though this 1922 version of "A Christmas Carol" has some missing footage it is still well worth seeing. Once again, i hope some of the quality companies such as Kino or Milestone will consider releasing this. There are so many of the silent classics that have not been seen for a generation or more. This "carol" is one you'll never forget. I'm sure you will find yourself watching it in the Christmas's "yet to come".
