In this stunningly suspenseful noir take on "A Christmas Carol," Peter Cushing (in perhaps the finest performance of his long career) plays a Scrooge-like bank manager caught in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with a charming and merciless thief (an equally great André Morell) who's devised a devious plan for a holiday heist. Known mainly for its horror films, this is one of the greatest movies ever produced by Britain's legendary Hammer Films.
