Please note it is a region 2 DVD and would require a region 2 or region free DVD player to be able to play. George C. Scott plays the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge on this version of the Dickens Christmas classic. Scrooge is a misanthrope unimpressed by the fuss everyone makes throughout the festive season. That may be, until his sleep is disturbed one Christmas Eve by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future, each and every of which takes him on a journey which helps him to open his heart to his fellow man and to thereby learn the enjoyment of Christmas. Filmed entirely on location within the historic the city of Shrewsbury.
