Crotchety Victorian businessman Ebenezer Scrooge (Alastair Sim) has no use for festivity, even at Christmas. After resentfully dismissing his timid clerk, Bob Cratchit (Mervyn Johns), so the man can spend the holiday with his loving wife (Hermione Baddeley) and family, Scrooge is swept into a nightmare. The ghost of his late partner, Jacob Marley (Michael Hordern), appears, warning that Scrooge will be visited by three more ghosts who will show the bitter man the error of his coldhearted ways.
