The journey that led to Charles Dickens' creation of "A Christmas Carol," a timeless tale that would redefine Christmas.
The character of John Leech (Simon Callow) is portrayed in the film as being older than Charles Dickens. In real life, Dickens (born 1812) was five years older than Leech (born 1817).
Thackeray taunts Dickens by reminding him of the American phrase, "There's gold in them thar hills. " The film events take place prior to Christmas 1843. The phrase is attributed to Georgia assayer Mathew Stephenson regarding the 1849 California gold rush but popularized in an 1892 book by Mark Twain.
