Christmas in Connecticut with Barbara Stanwyck and Dennis Morgan

Come to the Stable with Loretta Young and Celeste Holm (not exactly a Christmas movie per se, but very heartwarming and Young and Holm make a pair of glamorous, campy French nuns ;) )

White Christmas.....if anything, just for Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen's costume changes and "Sisters".

And the one that the Fergus family STILL gathers around to watch every year:

The Bishop's Wife!!! Cary Grant is MY idea of a guardian angel. ;) David Niven is perfect and Gladys Cooper makes me cry when Grant visits her and plays the harp.......

........AND it has a figure skating scene with Grant's double knocking off axels! :D

The Spencer Tracy/Katherine Hepburn movie, Desk Set, has a scene with a great, really fun-looking office party. Watching it just puts me in a happy mood every time! :D

Does Black Christmas count? :EVILLE: I do like A Christmas Story and the French film A Christmas Tale. My mother loves to tell me about all the Christmas movies on Lifetime and Hallmark that I should watch, which is not going to happen.

We can't start the Christmas movie-watching season without putting on "Scrooge", the Alistair Sim one. We watch the colorized version but the B/W is really just as good.

Not mentioned here is "Pocketfull of Miracles". Glenn Ford, Hope Lange, Bette Davis (one of her best perfomances IMO) & Ann Margaret (before she fell off the stage & broke her face...she is breathtakingly beautiful), plus a very funny Peter Falk & Edward Everett Horton, & a lot of great supporting people. One of our favorites.

The Family Stone, while not a traditional Christmas movie, is a Christmas movie. And as ridiculous as it is, I love it.

Another not Christmas movie that is great at Christmas. Anyone who has ever been part of a church Christmas pageant will appreciate the clip here. :lol: Yay for Simon Birch.

Another vote for Come to the Stable; it doesn't get shown nearly often enough.

It's a Wonderful Life - for sure.
And - I always have a craving this time of year to watch Anne of Green Gables.
In fact - I may just do that tonight! :)

Lol! That's a great scene. I also enjoy seeing Spencer Tracy play the bongos, while Katherine sings Night and Day... :) :)

Christmas in Connecticut with Barbara Stanwyck and Dennis Morgan
Barbara has two other holiday movies I lurve, Remember the Night with Fred MacMurray and My Reputation with Eve Arden. The latter isn't a holiday movie per se, but the last half takes place over Xmas and New Years. The former has a sparkling script by Preston Sturges too!

I for one, actually like The Preacher's Wife. Whitney was starting to show some improvement as an actress and I lurve Denzel and Courtney Vance in it as well. Maybe 'cause I couldn't stand Loretta Young, the remake doesn't bother me so much.

And my personal holiday fave is The Family Stone. One of SJPs best movies ever. Love Diane Keaton in it. It's sad but uplifting at the same time. And wickedly funny.
