Ebenezer Scrooge (Seymour Hicks) is a curmudgeonly businessman
who hates the Christmas season because it interferes with
making money.

His meek employee, Bob Cratchit (Donald Calthrop), dutifully
serves Scrooge despite his mistreatment because Bob needs to
provide for his family. On the night of Christmas Eve, Scrooge is
visited by a number of visions, including the Spirit of Christmas
Present (Oscar Asche), which shows him things he cannot
normally see, changing the miser’s attitude forever.
