J. Searle Dawley – A Christmas Carol (1910)

Based on the story by Charles Dickens: The day before the Christmas holiday, Ebenezer Scrooge refuses to contribute to the Charity Relief Committee, and then rudely rejects his nephew when he visits Scrooge in his office. When Scrooge returns home, he sees the ghost of his former business partner Marley, who warns him of the punishment he will suffer in the next life if he does not change his ways. That night, Scrooge is visited by three more spirits, who show him his past, the present, and the future that awaits him. (imdb)

A miserable old miser, frightened & shamed into better behavior, learns to make his life A CHRISTMAS CAROL of good will towards men.

This version of Charles Dickens’ 1843 classic is condensed into only a few minutes, hitting the highlights of Ebenezer Scrooge’s astonishing reformation. Surprisingly, in such an extreme abridgment, the acting is quite good and the special effects – involving double exposures – well handled.

Al Kryszak provided the score for the video compilation A Christmas Past, in which this film appears.(imdb)
