    Christmas Movies

    Since there's a Christmas music thread, I thought it would be nice to have one for the movies. Personally, I love watching Miracle on 34th Street, the first two movies of the Home Alone series and Christmas Vacation. Any suggestions?

    I'm with you, I love both the first two Home Alones and Christmas Vacation. I also watch the Santa Clause every year (only the first one, the other ones are meh).

    A Christmas Story, the first two in the Home Alone series, Holiday Inn, Elf, Christmas with the Kranks, and Love, Actually. Not movies, but I love A Charlie Brown Christmas and I Want a Dog for Christmas.

    Not exactly a Christmas movie, but you gotta love Meet me in Saint Louis.

    I'm currently watching It's A Wonderful Life . A perfect Christmas movie, IMO.

    I really luuuuv all the old Andy Williams TV Christmas specials (I'm a child of the late 60's/early 70's.) I have them on DVD, and watch them every December.

    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!

    The Bells of St. Mary's
    Come to the Stable.
    And It's a Wonderful Life, but that one I watch about every other year.
    Love Actually is so much fun to watch.
    White Christmas and Holiday Inn.
    Beyond Christmas - an obscure little black and white I found on video with Harry Carey, Charles Winniger and C. Aubrey Smith.

    I just signed up for free TCM and AMC for three months so I can watch my favourites no longer available on regular channels. I just have to remember to stop it before the March deadline.

    I love The Santa Clause trilogy (even the third one which has its mad cheesy parts ) and it's not one I watch every year but I do like Elf.

    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!

    Does Black Christmas count? 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.
