Ebenezer is a 1998 Canadian television production re-telling of Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol with Jack Palance giving a performance as Ebenezer Scrooge, á la Western genre. After a half-century of screen presence, in one of Palance's final projects before his retirement.

A TV film with high production value, it debuted in the United States on Turner Network Television. It is an obscure and rarely seen title.


Ebenezer Scrooge is the most greedy, corrupt and mean-spirited crook in the old West and he sees no value in "Holiday Humbug." But when the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future open his eyes, Scrooge discovers that love and friendships are the greatest wealth of all.
