6 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 10 libraries worldwide
Eine Weihnachtsgeschichte - Nach dem Roman-Klassiker von Charles Dickens. Seit dem Tod seines Partners Marley betreibt der geizige Scrooge sein Geschäft allein. Kaltherzig und rücksichtslos quält er unglückliche Schuldner, demütigt seinen unterbezahlten Sekretär und begegnet seinen Mitmenschen mit Misstrauen und Verachtung. Selbst das heranrückende Weihnachtsfest ist für Scrooge nur lästig und überflüssig. Eines kalten Winterabends taucht der Geist Marleys bei ihm auf und kündigt die Ankunft dreier weiterer Geister an. Die lassen nicht lange auf sich warten: Der Geist der Vergangenheit, der Geist der Gegenwart und der Geist der Zukunft führen ihm sein jämmerliches Dasein und seine Gemeinheiten vor Augen. Mit Erschrecken sieht Scrooge, welche fürchterlichen Folgen seine herzlosen Taten haben. Zum ersten Mal empfindet er Mitleid und Reue? Gefühle, die sein Leben verändern... Regie: Brian Desmond Hurst. Mit: Mervyn Johns, Alastair Sim... Untertitel: Deutsch.(Quelle: http://headfilm.ch/)
