Classic Hollywood Christmas Movies

Christmas movie, Christmas film, Christmas


Who doesn't love curling up on the sofa with a mug of hot chocolate and watching a Christmas movie?With the official start of the Christmas season about to kick off, I wanted to offer a few of my favorite classic Hollywood Christmas film. If you haven’t already seen these films, I hope you discover at least one new holiday favorite. If you have seen them, then I hope you’re inspired to watch them again.

Christmas movie, Christmas film, Christmas, Christmas in ConnecticutChristmas in Connecticut. Barbara Stanwyck plays a ladies’ magazine writer who must pretend to be the domestic goddess she portrays in her column in order to fool her publisher boss. The plot is fun, the dialogue witty and the chemistry between the hero and heroine sparkles.

Christmas movie, Christmas film, Christmas, The Bishop's WifeChristmas movie, Christmas film, Christmas, A Tale of Two CitiesThe Bishops Wife. This 1947 classic stars Cary Grant, David Niven and Loretta Young. Cary Grant is spectacular as usual as an angel who comes to help an Episcopal Bishop remember the important things in life.

A Tale of Two Cities. The 1935 version with Ronald Colman is excellent. Now, I realize it isn't strictly a Christmas movie and it can be a bit heavy at times, but some of the story does take place at Christmas. Ronald Coleman's portrayal of Sydney Carton is very moving and well worth watching.

Miracle on 34th Street, Christmas movie, Christmas film, ChristmasMiracle on 34th Street – The original 1947 version is a heartwarming classic about a man on trial for claiming to be Santa Claus and the little girl who believes in him. This is Natalie Wood’s first film role and the one that shot her to fame.

Whether you’re done shopping and ready to coast through the rest of the holidays, or you have just come home from braving the mall, pour yourself a cup of hot chocolate, pop some popcorn and get in the holiday mood with one of these heartwarming films. Afterwards, please consider curling up with my classic Hollywood novel, Studio Relations. Set in 1935 Hollywood, it is the story of Vivien Howard, a vivacious female director and Weston Holmes, a handsome studio executive who must overcome their professional differences to find love during Hollywood’s golden age.

Dropping by your blog today and I agree this time of year is the best time to pop in a classic Christmas video with some hot chocolate. My favorite is It's A Wonderful Life.

I am now following you the your Blog Hop. When my daughter was still an infant & Bjorn bound, I like many other mommies used to do all my chores while holding her in the carrier. One morning, I was doing laundry. I loaded up a full load of whites & closed the washing machine door & went on to my next chore. My daughter was being uncharacteristically quiet, so it started to worry me a little. I went to the nearest mirror to see what it was that she was doing & found her happily nibbling away on a pair of mommy's dirty underwear. I was mortified. Suffice it to say, I always check her hands & mouth after dropping in a load of laundry from that day forward.
