Contents: "Old Ebenezer Scrooge is known as the meanest miser in London. He overworks and underpays his humble clerk, Bob Cratchit whose little son, Tiny Tim, is crippled and may soon die. He also avoids his nephew, Fred, because his birth cost the life of Scrooge's sister. One Christmas Eve Scrooge has a dreadful nightmare. He is visited by three ghosts who change his life forever. Gene Shalit-"My favorite holiday story is "A Christmas Carol", written by Charles Dickens in 1843 and since then adapted for every known form of communication except Aztec smoke signals. There have been at least eight movie versions ... but the single enduring version is the 1951 film starring Alastair Sim as Ebenezer Scrooge. The story flows with happiness and remorse; it teaches a lesson; it is a gripping ghost story; it spreads before us a vivid picture of 19th century London; and it's central character is all that drama can offer; a figure who undergoes a monumental change and fills us with good feelings. The spell cast by the spirits of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet To Come make "A Christmas Carol" an incomparable Christmas ... present."
