Holiday Movies

For many of us, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the annual viewing of our favorite holiday film. If you need a little inspiration, check out the Film Guru's list of Top Ten Christmas Movies. This site offers a long list of old Christmas films, including A Christmas Story and A Very Brady Christmas.

It's A Wonderful Life Webring gives you "The Zuzu News," "Bedford Falls Christmas" and numerous other tributes, as well as a chance to e-mail holiday greetings based on scenes from the film.

If you prefer Natalie Wood and Maureen O'Hara in Miracle on 34th Street, check out the original movie poster.

Few movies say "Christmas" like A Christmas Carol, whichever version you choose. For many, the 1951 film Scrooge starring Alistair Sims is the quintessential interpretation, but you can also choose Albert Finney's 1970 musical adaptation, also called Scrooge, or George C. Scott's 1984 TV version.

Kids will enjoy Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol and The Muppet Christmas Carol, where Michael Caine takes on the role of Scrooge.





If you're looking to branch out a bit, here are some films that, while they're not actually holiday movies, will certainly make your spirits bright.

  • The Bells of St. Mary's
    Features Ingrid Bergman, Bing Crosby and a memorable Christmas pageant performed by first-graders.

  • The Bishop's Wife
    Fans of Zuzu from "It's a Wonderful Life" will want to see Karolyn Grimes play another adorable kid with a disillusioned father.

  • Holiday Inn
    The film in which Bing Crosby first sang the now-classic "White Christmas." Many people think it's just as good as the 1954 film White Christmas.

  • Little Women
    Don't miss the heart-warming Christmas scene when Mr. March returns from the war.

  • Meet John Doe
    Darker than most, but the climactic scene takes place on Christmas, and you'll hear Gary Cooper say, "There's something swell about the spirit of Christmas, to see what it does to people, all kinds of people. Now why can't that spirit, that same warm Christmas spirit, last the whole year round?"

  • Meet Me in St. Louis
    This film has beautiful holiday scenes, and you'll hear Judy Garland sing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."

  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
    Here's proof that when it comes to holidays, family is much more important than possessions.
