Christmas Movies?

These following movies I have either read or heard were Christmas related in some way. Perhaps just a scene or two, or maybe it is Christmas themed, I don't know, I haven't seen them. But I plan to watch them this year, if possible.


Room For One More


Anne and "Poppy" Rose are the average American family, with three quirky kids. Anne has a good heart and gives lost cats and dogs a home - and one day also the orphan Jane, a problem child who already tried to kill herself once. At first Poppy is worried and wants to get rid of her, but with love and patience they finally manage to integrate her into the family. Just then Anne invites another orphan, the aggressive handicapped Jimmy-John, to their summer vacation.

Susan Slept Here

Mark Christopher is a successful thirty-five-year-old Hollywood screenwriter who has suffered from partial writer's block since winning an Academy Award and has been unable to produce a decent script. One Christmas Eve, he receives an unexpected and very unwanted surprise present.



Fitzwilly

When Miss Vicki's father dies, she becomes the world's greatest philanthropist. Unfortunately, she is flat broke! Her loyal butler, Claude Fitzwilliam, leads the household staff to rob from various businesses by charging goods to various wealthy people and misdirecting the shipments, all to keep Miss Vicki's standard of living. After Fitzwilly's mother died Miss Vicki helped raise him and he loves her like a mother and would do anything for her. With Fitzwilly's encouragement, Miss Vicki writes a "Dictionary for Dopes" which contains all possible phonetic spellings of a word, and gives the reader the correct one, and for that she needs a secretary. Juliet is the one who is hired, soon she is caught up in the intrigue and falls in love with Fitzwilly. They agree to carry out one more caper before they get married, to keep Miss Vicki comfortable for the rest of her days.

The Wingless Bird

"On Christmas Eve, 1913, Agnes Conway is working in her family's confectionery shop when she meets well-to-do Charles Farrier. Despite their different backgrounds, Agnes and Charles are immediately attracted to one another. But Agnes soon becomes preoccupied with a family crisis that has consequences far worse than any of them could imagine"--
