I have a couple of Christmas movies I enjoy that aren't out on DVD yet. A Child's Christmas in Wales
by Dylan Thomas and starring Denholm Elliot is long overdue, as is Holiday Affair
with Janet Leigh and Robert Mitchum.
Robert Mitchum plays a guy who is selling trains in a department store. When I was little I can remember seeing my Dad running a train display in a department store. I think it was a May Company store but it might have been some other. Long ago and this movie brings it back.
I seem to watch certain Christmas movies every other year or so.
My list is:
- The Bishop's Wife
- Christmas Carol '51
- A Christmas Story
- Christmas In Connecticut '45
- White Christmas
- Holiday Inn
- Christmas Vacation
- One Magic Christmas
- The Snowman
Sorry for violating the tenets of this thread.
An older movie with a great Christmas scene in it is Penny Arcade
by George Stevens. The Bells of St. Mary's
has another great Christmas scene in it.
A couple I didn't mention are "Miracle . . ." and the too oft seen "It's a . . .".
There are more recent additions that I haven't gotten into yet. Maybe I'll try the Tim Allen ones again. They didn't do it for me but, hey whoever thought that the Chevy Chase Christmas movie would be a classic.
Well, for me it is. ;)
