Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The misanthropic Ebenezer Scrooge's redemption comes after a ghostly night-time journey through his Christmas Past, Present, and Future. The musical version was adapted by Maxwell Anderson for the television show, Shower of Stars, and features Fredric March, who received an Emmy nomination for his portrayal of Scrooge. The great Basil Rathbone co-stars as the ghost of Scrooge's dead partner Jacob, in one of the most chilling portrayals of Marley ever.
