I love this movie!
Its so great, isn't it!
I think a Christmas round is a wonderful idea! 3. White Christmas from 1954 is one of the greatest Christmas classics. It was an Irving Berlin musical formed around the title song, which won an Academy Award when Bing Crosby sang it in Holiday Inn of 1942. This beautiful Christmas movie features Bing, as well as Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera Ellen. It's a Christmas movie which no one should miss! "May your days be merry and bright, and may all your Christmases be white."
4. Remember the Night - This is one of my favorite Christmas movies. It stars Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray. Stanwyck plays a shoplifter and MacMurray the prosecutor who is trying to convict her. Her trial is held over the holidays, so MacMurray takes pity on her and pays her bail. Eventually, she ends up spending Christmas with him at his mother's house in Indiana, and those scenes are the epitome of an American Christmas of 1940. Of course, in the midst of all this coziness, the two fall in love. Beulah Bondi plays MacMurray's mother, and Elizabeth Patterson turns in my favorite performance as MacMurray's aunt. This is a romantic drama with plenty of humor. If you haven't seen it, put this on your list!
5. Scrooge (1951) - British b/w drama- Alastair Sim, Kathleen Harrison, Jack Warner, Michael Hordern, Mervyn Johns, George Cole.
The great morality tale, set in Victorian London, adapted from the novel, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. It's shining star, Alastair Sim, quite magnificently as the dour miserly businessman, Ebenezer Scrooge.
The man experiences a revelation in his life that makes him see the error of his ways that leads to repentance.
Congruously errie, atmospherically haunting, together with pathos and strong characterization the film really does evoke the ambience of the novel.
Nice pics, John. This is the version I have. What is plum-duff?
6. I'll Be Seeing You - Ginger Rogers and Joseph Cotten star in this sweet romance set at Christmastime. The characters each have a secret they don't want to share, which nearly ruins their budding romance. Great family Christmas scenes and a New Year's Eve dance make this a feel-good selection for the holidays. Spring Byington and Shirley Temple turn in supporting performances as family members.
I couldn't believe this was on YouTube!
