Synopsis


An American Christmas Carol
Made up to look like a septuagenarian, Henry Winkler plays Benedict Slade, a Scrooge-like miser living in a tiny New England town during the Depression. Slade goes Scrooge one further by repossessing items from a poor farm couple and an orphanage on Christmas eve. While reading a copy of Dickens' The Christmas Carol in his home, Slade is visited by his own set of Spirits Past, Present and Future, including his Hell-dwelling late business partner (Kenneth Pogue). Lensed in Canada, this made-for-TV film premiered the week before Christmas of 1979. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Great variation on the story about our actions and values in our life. The story is updated and set during the American depression period. Great acting by all. Should be a tradition to be viewed each Christmas time.

    This version is close to my heart. I saw it as a teen. Yes, I'm that old. If you can get past Henry Winkler's 70's hair in the Christmas past scenes, you will likely enjoy it too.
