Okay here is a question:

The problem is that most people play Scrooge as a just a mean old cheap

How old *is *Scrooge?

If he's 60 or more (in this time period) he is most likely going to die
soon. Most people and productions play him as a generic old.

However, I must put forward; what is the point of redeeming some one who's
time on earth is waning? Besides for their immortal soul of course.
