THM Picks: Holiday Classics

It's no secret that this is my favorite time of year, and I have a number of favorite movies I like to watch along with it! Although many classic films tend to be a bit more sentimental than we're used to these days, the sheer craftsmanship more than makes up for it. So when you've watched every adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" known to man, and "It's A Wonderful Life" just seems too long to contemplate, here are my top classic holiday film picks for your viewing pleasure:
  • The Bishop's Wife (1947) - an absolute favorite, expertly acted and directed, with an outstanding supporting cast.
  • The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942) - Bette Davis shows her softer side, and Monty Woolley gives his signature performance as the irascible title character.
  • Christmas in Connecticut (1945) - lighthearted fun with a great cast of characters.
  • Holiday Inn/White Christmas (1942/1954) - holiday essentials for song and dance fans.
  • Auntie Mame (1958) - Rosalind Russell's definitive portrayal of the unconventional aunt with unbounded love and affection for those she holds dear.
  • Come to the Stable (1949) - A movie from another time, but timeless nonetheless; a gentle story that just might surprise you by becoming one of your holiday favorites.
  • Die Hard (1988) - after all, when a movie is celebrating its 30th anniversary, it's obviously a classic...right??? ;-)
