My favorite movies are all from years gone by and most are black and white -- no big fancy special effects, just good dialog and storylines that make you smile.
Of course, most everyone has heard of It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) and Miracle on 34th Street (1947) but have you heard or better, seen any of these
- The Bishop’s Wife - 1947 starring Cary Grant
- Holiday Inn - 1942 - the first movie to debut White Christmas, and yes, Bing Crosby sang it in this movie too
- It Happened on Fifth Avenue - 1947- a beautiful movie leaving you feeling good about helping others
- Christmas in Connecticut - 1945 - with Barbara Stanwyck as that day’s Martha Stewart with a twist
- The Man Who Came to Dinner - 1942 - a great movie full of fun and I love Bette Davis
- And did you know The Thin Man - 1934 is set at Christmas time and can be considered a Christmas movie
- The Lemon Drop Kid - 1951 - which gave us Silver Bells for the first time starring Bob Hope
And now on to MY FAVORITE
We’re No Angels – 1955 (the year before I was born) with Humphrey Bogart, Aldo Ray, and Peter Ustinov. This is not your typical Christmas movie however it shows there is good in all and good comes to those who wait and good can overcome evil. BUT it does this in a funny, off beat sort of way.
How do you share your favorite movie about escaped convicts at Christmas time? Well, maybe a photo of popcorn and a soda or hot chocolate with marshmallows next to a CD case will work just fine.
Whate is your favorite Christmas movie, please share in the comments below.
