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.

One of Many Silent Attempts at Scrooge!
21 December 2011 | by SylSee all my reviews

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.
