This Year and Christmas Movies

This year, I’m not going to do my usual Christmas list, as I’ve done them 2 years in a row and really have run out of movies to add.  I will do some Christmas movie posts, but they will be general.

I was looking on line to see if I can find any classic Christmas movies that I haven’t seen.  It doesn’t look like it.  I think they are all here.  I listed movies that ranged from 1934 – 1967.  Movies after 1970 are not Classics to me.

I’ve noticed most of the Christmas movies are post-war (1945-1950), I guess Hollywood was feeling good about Christmas and life in general.

Here is the list.  Check out the ones you haven’t seen.

Babes in Toyland (March of the Wooden Soldiers) (1934)
Beyond Christmas (1940)
The Man Who Came to Dinner (1941)
Christmas in Connecticut (1945)
I’ll Be Seeing You (1945)
It’s A Wonderful Life (1946) *
The Bishops Wife (1947)
It Happened on 5th Avenue (1947)
Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
Come to the Stable (1949)
Holiday Affair (1949)
A Christmas Wish (The Great Rupert) (1950)
Last Holiday (1950)
Room For One More (1952)
Susan Slept Here (1954)
We’re No Angels (1955)
All Mine to Give (1957) *
Pocketful of Miracles (1961)
Fitzwilly (1967)

Below are Movies that are the same (storyline the same)

Shop Around the Corner (1940)
In The Good Old Summertime (1949)

Scrooge (A Christmas Carol) (1951)

Below are Movies that are sequels

These aren’t truly Christmas Movies, however, they are watched during the season and are beloved by many, and they have a Christmas scene or two.  

The Bells of St. Mary (1945)
Going My Way (1944)
Boys Town (1938) *
Meet Me in St. Louis (1944)
