A sexy retelling of the Dickens holiday classic A Christmas Carol, this well-crafted adult feature stars Merrie Holiday as the mean and nasty editrix of a skin magazine who is making her poor assistant work late on Christmas Eve redoing layout designs. When she finally goes home, she's visited by the ghost of her former partner, who joins her for a rousing boink session. Then she's off to Christmas Future, where she fins herself as a skanky Times Square prostitute. Then she sees Christmas Present, where her assistant, at last home with his wife, is enjoying a tender and intimate love-making session. A very good porn adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

''My name is Shaun Costello and I wrote and directed this movie. This was the very first hard core XXX adult film to open in a straight theater. It opened at the Quad Cinemas in 1975 to empty seats. My first flop. It was big, it was noisy, it was colorful, it was funny, but there was one thing it wasn't; it wasn't sexy. It was shot in 16MM film with a budget of $14,000. which wound up at about $18,000. after overages. I had never worked on a sound stage before, and had to keep the production going 24 hours a day to complete it anywhere near it's original budget. It was shot at what became Mother's Sound Stage in New York's East Village. My wonderful neighbors, who lived in my rent controlled apartment building on East 21st Street, built the sets, sewed the costumes, and in general just made it all happen. My friend David Wool created the skyline of Manhattan that is seen from Carol Scrooge's window, and built it out of corrugated cardboard. To David, and Harriett, and Shelly, and the rest; I could never have done this without you. This is an odd movie that does have some hilarious moments.''
