Plot Outline:

The timeworn Dickens' story about the old merchant Scrooge and how his own disappointments shape his view that neither life or men are worthy of his notice or concern. He displays no charity to anyone, and is especially harsh to his employee Bob Cratchett. But the dessicated gent is about to get his comeuppance when he imagines he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.

This version of A Christmas Carol is not very interesting. It lacks a strong central performance, Owen plays Scrooge very boringly. Most of the cast is rather boring although I did like Gene Lockhart as Bob Cratchit. The changes to this one's story are unneeded and do not add anything to the story. The film is never very interesting and is rather boring most of the time. It lack the emotional strength of the great adaptations. There is nothing special about the version it is a completely unspectacular version.
