"The spirits will move you in odd and hysterical ways."

Frank Cross runs a US TV station which is planning a live adaptation of Dickens' Christmas Carol.

With the help of the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future, Frank realizes he must change.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Frank Cross' office door is being beaten down by Lew Hayward, it is obviously made of metal, as it retains the dents from the impacts on the outside. However, when the door finally shatters, it is clearly made of wood.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): During the broadcast of A Christmas Carol, Scrooge (Buddy Hacket) tosses a coin to a boy so he can buy a Christmas goose. The shot seen in the control room monitor shows the coin falling in slow motion. Since the show is being broadcast live, it could only be shown falling at normal speed.
  • The character name Calvin Cooley is a reference to President Calvin Coolidge who was known as a man of few words.
  • The trivia game played by Frank's brother is "what's the name of the boat on Gilligan's Island?" Director Richard Donner was one of the original directors on the show.
