This is the fist movie adaptation with sound of the classic story of three ghosts visiting a crotchety and down-spirited old man on Christmas Eve.
Scrooge hates Christmas. He finds the cheer deplorable and a waste of time. His nephew Fred and employee Cratchit, the only two people that could be considered Scrooge’s friends at the time, enjoy the holiday season. Scrooge throws his humbugs around and scoffs at their well meant cheer. Scrooge wasn’t always like this though, and when the three ghosts visit him and show him where he went wrong, how he is now, and where he’s going with his current attitudes, it seems as though Scrooge may just make a turnaround right in time for Christmas.
