It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  At least as far as this weekend’s movies are concerned.

Christmas in Connecticut (Warner Bros., 1945)

Barbara Stanwyck stars in the lovely Christmas confection as an unmarried, big city magazine writer who, to sell her homey stories, poses as a farm wife.  The magic of Christmas and of her handsome war vet (Dennis Morgan) upsets the ruse.  Also in the cast are Sidney Greenstreet and a very funny S.Z. Sakall.  In 1992, the film was remade for television.  That version starred Dyan Cannon and was directed by Arnold Schwarzenegger (!).   (B&W, 101 minutes)

A Christmas Story (MGM/UA, 1983)

Just as the sequel comes close to opening in theaters, let’s revisit the original modern classic:  Little Ralphie, a Red Ryder BB gun an bad bunny costume.  Peter Billingsley stars in the beloved film based upon the writings of Jean Shepherd.  This film was added to the Library’s National Film Registry in 2012.  (Color, 93 minutes)

White Christmas (Paramount, 1954)

Lovely musical–whose reputation grows every year–with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen.  Crosby and Kaye star as successful song-and-dance team who become romantically involved with a sister act and team up to save a failing Vermont inn.  (Color, 120 minutes).
