An American Christmas Carol
- 1 hr 38 min
This film is the American version of the Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Benedict Slade was the president of a New England finance company on Christmas Eve 1933, during the Great Depression. Slade was so stingy, that on Christmas Eve, instead of giving candy to children, he gave out company cards saying, "You Can Do It." Slade repossessed property from debtors. Like Ebenezer Scrooge, he was visited by three spirits: Past, Present, and Future. They showed Mr. Slade his life and legacy from his childhood in an orphanage to the townspeople burning his portrait and other possessions after his death.
