A Carol for Another Christmas, Rod Serling’s 1964 retelling of ‘A Christmas Carol’

In 1964, ABC premiered “A Carol for Another Christmas,” a made-for-TV movie written by Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling as a modernization of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” The film, which aired only once on December 28, 1964, is both a retelling of the classic tale and a call for cooperation between nations. Directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz (whose profile photo conjures up “Bob Dobbs”), it was presented as a commercial-free “United Nations Special” and features theme music by Henry Mancini.
