On October 9, Shout! Factory will release An American Christmas Carol on DVD and, for the first time, Blu-ray.
In this unique retelling of Charles Dickens’ beloved “A Christmas Carol,” Henry Winkler is Benedict Slade, a heartless finance company president in Depression era New England. He shatters the Christmas hopes of his debtors by mercilessly repossessing their most prized goods—and then fires his faithful assistant, Thatcher, on Christmas Eve.
Alone in his apartment, the selfish Slade is visited by three ghosts—Christmas Past, Present and Future—who take him on a late-night journey and reveal the bitter truths of his life to teach him the true meaning of Christmas.
This wonderful tale of a 20th-Century Scrooge is a moving and heartfelt adaptation that brings new life to a treasured holiday classic. Available on Blu-ray for the first time, the beloved TV film looks better than ever re-mastered in high-definition, and makes a merry stocking stuffer!
