In 1843, Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter and miserly old moneylender at a London counting house holds everything that embodies the joys and spirit of Christmas in contempt. He refuses to visit his cheerful nephew, Fred, at his Christmas dinner party with his family, and he forces his underpaid employee Bob Cratchit to beg to take the day off for his own family. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley, who had died seven years prior and is now forced to spend his afterlife carrying heavy chains forged from his own greedy ways. Marley warns Scrooge that he will suffer an even worse fate if he does not repent. He then tells Scrooge he will be visited by three more spirits that will help guide him.

C'est avec sa soeur Vivian que Dorothy Dandridge fait ses débuts au Cotton Club, dans les années 40, en qualité de chanteuse et de danseuse. Lorsque le cinéma, incarné par Otto Preminger, lui fait les yeux doux, elle ne lui résiste guère. Solidement épaulée par Earl Mills, son manager, elle touche à la consécration dans «Carmen Jones». Si «Porgy and Bess», autre film musical, entretient sa renommée, «Island in the Sun» et «Tamango» véhiculent un message résolument antiraciste...
