Love me some Christmas Flicks!

We love to watch movies especially classic movies with "real" actors. At Christmas time we pull out all the old Christmas flicks and sit down several times a week and watch a Christmas movie. Here's some of our favorite classic movies. 

Without saying really, one of the best, all-time Christmas movies ever made. James Stewart and Donna Reed, can't go wrong with them. Anyhow, it's great and if you haven't seen it you've really missed out!

My second favorite Christmas movie, The Bishop's Wife. David Niven, Loretta Young and last but not least Ol' Mr. Grant himself. This is a delightful tale of the misplaced values and a little help from above. Just seen this one this year and it's already one of my favorites!

Yet another new one to me; We're No Angels is hilarious and the sorta movie you start watching and never think about anything else till it's over.
The lead actor being Mr. Bogart with two wonderful actors along side. Peter Ostinov is the actor that played Black Beard in Disney's Black Beard's Ghost (hillarious). Anyhow, this one is great and totally worth the watch.

Another Jimmy Stewart Christmas, feel-good movie. Shop Around the Corner is just a very nice, feel-good movie. Worth the watch!

Lest I forget, Mr. Scrooge, This is my favorite rendition of A Christmas Carol. I love the actors and it's just very high quality. It's aweful hard to make a less than great Christmas Carol!

Can't ever get enough of Dr. Seuss! My kids love this movie and honestly I do too.

Oops, I almost forgot Charlie Brown. A Christmas classic forever. Poor Charlie makes us all feel better about ourselves no matter how pittiful we are. :0)

So here are some of my Christmas favorites,
what are some of yours???
BTW, all these movies can be found used on Amazon for great prices.

  1. White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye in an annual event for us. That version of A Christmas Carol with George C. Scott is my favorite rendition, too.

  2. Love all of them, and in addition, they are all decent movies. Enjoy over and over!

  3. I too love It's a Wonderful Life! We also watch Christmas with the Kranks for a good laugh and A Christmas Carol with Patrick Stewart is my favourite version of that movie. I'll have to look for some of these others. I haven't even heard of some of them.

  4. It's a Wonderful Life and the Bishops Wife as well for me. Thanks for the smiles, Tori. Happy Thanksgiving, friend. Blessings

  5. Oh gosh, I love those classic Christmas movies as well! "White Christmas" would have to be added to the list for me. My personal tradition is to watch "A Miracle on 34th Street" Thanksgiving evening. It sort of sets off the season for me. My favorite "Christmas Carol" is the Alistair Sim version. I have many versions of this movie because I love it! I do enjoy those classic movies from the 40s. The ladies dressed so classy and I loved to watch Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dance. My personal crush was Gene Kelly though. Have a great day.

  6. I like most of the ones you mentioned Tori. I have never seen Shop Around the Corner or We're No Angels. Will put them on my list when I head to the library. We have a good selection of DVDS there. I love While You Were Sleeping and Home Alone. Home Alone is celebrating 25 years this year and it is being shown in the theaters again. I look forward to seeing it on the big screen again.

  7. You mentioned a couple I haven't seen. I love the old Christmas in Connecticut and The Bishop's Wife. That's my favorite Christmas Carol, too.
