Plot Summary

In 1860, cranky old miser Ebenezer Scrooge hates Christmas, loathes people, and defends the decrease of the surplus of poor population, runs his bank exploiting his employee Bob Cratchit and clients, giving a bitter treatment to his own nephew and acquaintances. However, on Christmas Eve, he is visited by the doomed ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley, who tells him that three spirits would visit him that night. The first one, the spirit of Christmas Past, recalls his miserable youth when he lost his only love due to his greed, the spirit of Christmas Present shows him the poor situation of Bob's family, and how joyful life may be and the spirit of Christmas Yet To Come shows his fate. Scrooge finds that life is good, and time is too short, and suddenly you are not there anymore, changing his behavior toward Christmas, Bob, his nephew, and people in general. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia In the book, the Ghost of Christmas Present is described as a giant. Kenneth More, who was only 5'7" (170 cm.), wore twelve inch (30.5 cm.) high stilts to make him appear much taller than Scrooge. See more »
Goofs During the reprise of "Thank You very Much" at the end of the movie, the crowd sings and dances their way past the booth of the Punch and Judy man and the camera stops to focus on him. If you look just to the left of his booth, you can see the actors stopping and turning back since they are now "off-camera." But, the next shot after the Punch and Judy man shows them continuing down the street. See more »
