The 1964 movie, Carol for another Christmas directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, written by Rod Serling, is based on Charles Dickens’s novel A Christmas Carol. The film narrates the story of an industrial tycoon Daniel Grudge (Sterling Hayden), who couldn’t recover from the loss of his 22-year-old son, Marley (Peter Fonda), who was killed in World War II on Christmas Eve. The embittered Grudge has only scorn for any American involvement in international affairs. But then he is visited by three ghosts — based on the Ghost of Christmas Past, Ghost of Christmas Present and the Ghost of Christmas Future — who make him understand the importance of international peace. If you are someone who is interested in world history, then this movie is a must watch. It will take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride.
