|White Christmas (1954)|
|Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)|
|Christmas in Connecticut (1945)|
|An Affair to Remember (1957)|
|Holiday Affair (1949)|
Honourable Mention: These films are also worth a viewing every Christmas!
1) I'll Be Seeing You (1944): An adorable and extremely unique wartime Christmas romance with the wonderful Ginger Rogers and Joseph Cotten.
2) In the Good Old Summertime (1949): Despite the title, this remake of The Shop Around the Corner (1940) with Judy Garland and Van Johnson actually mostly takes place in the winter.
3) The Bishop's Wife (1947): Haven't you always wanted to see Cary Grant play an angel? I thought so! This film is almost too saccharine and corny, but the wonderful cast (Loretta Young, David Niven, Monty Woolley) saves it from becoming that way. Definitely worth a look!
4) Holiday Inn (1942): Fred Astaire dances with fireworks, Bing Crosby introduces "White Christmas" to the world... what more do you want? Delightful film that focusses on many holidays besides Christmas!
And, finally, if you haven't seen Jimmy Stewart in one of his best roles of all time and perhaps the best Christmas movie ever in It's a Wonderful Life (1946), you absolutely must!! Finally, finally, Miracle on 34th Street (1947) is also a perennial classic that all must view at least once!!
Enjoy and let me know your classic Christmas faves!
