      • Variety review, December 22, 1948: The familiar "Christmas Carol" story was mainly powered by Dennis King's brilliant performance as Scrooge. King projected the role so forcibly that it broke out of the small screen limitations into a three-dimensional portrait with a terrific emotional kick. There were some incidental flaws in the camera angles but these did not materially detract from the overall impact. More serious, however, was the repetitious use of a tricky photographic effect for the ghostly flights through time and space.

      • "Silent Night" was sung by Bing Crosby and the Mitchell Boys Choir.
