He displays no charity to mankind generally, and in particular, to his employee Bob Cratchit and his unfortunate son, Tiny Tim. But the old codger is about to learn a painful lesson when he imagines he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.

Notes: This movie stars Anne's grandfather Gene Lockhart (Bob Cratchit) and grandmother Kathleen Lockhart (Mrs. Cratchit). It also features the film debut of Anne's mother, June Lockhart (Belinda Cratchit).
