On Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the spirit of his former partner, Jacob Marley. The deceased partner was as mean and miserly as Scrooge is now and he warns him to change his ways or face the consequences in the afterlife.
An animated, magical, musical version of Dickens' timeless classic "A Christmas Carol." The nearsighted Mr. Magoo doesn't have a ghost of a chance as Ebenezer Scrooge, unless he learns the ... See full summary »
Scrooge & Marley is a modern variation on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Recounted from a gay sensibility with heart, comedy & music, the magic of Dickens' timeless tale of a man's redemption comes alive from a fresh perspective.

This is the only major film version of the story in which Marley's Ghost is not listed at all in the credits, even though his voice is heard in the picture. (He is never actually seen in this version, except on the door knocker). See more »
A colorized version was produced and released in 2007. See more »
BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE MOVIE. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM HONEST
This adaption of the novel would make Charles Dickens happy. In case you don't the story here it is.
Scrooge is a mean old man. He is always unhappy "about everything". He thinks his employee getting a day off work for Christmas really sets him off. He reluctantly does.
On Christmas Eve 4 Ghost come to visit him and shows him how his anger has hurt "Only Himself"
Now I like this adaption. According to IMDb there is 2 editions of the film. One runs an hour. The other one runs 78. I have yet to see the longer one.
This film is also in public domain. And unfortunately many DVD versions of this film. Anybody can release or show this for free. That's too bad. Because it needs to be restored. Nobody restores public domain films.
