Saddle up for a cowboy Christ mas in this western adaption of Charles Dickens' well loved story "A Christmas Carol". The scene is transferred from London's East End to a Wild West town in the Rocky mountains during the Gold Rush. Ebenezer Scrooge (Jack Palance) is the miserable card-cheating miser, who owns the local saloon along with half the town. He is as tough as rawhide. On Christmas Eve he is mysteriously visited by three apparitions who try to teach him the true spirit of Christmas. Will the lessons be learnt? Will Ebenezer show the impoverished Bob Crachett any appreciation?
