NOTE: For purposes of the poll, please post your OTHER answers in thie thread. I didn't put an OTHER response above because listing 5 choices usually messes up the results but I didn't feel I could leave out any of the four above. If any other films get mentioned as much as/more than the ones above I will post something to that effect in this initial post.


Yes, I realize it isn't even quite Thanksgiving yet... but if the retailers can start their marketing blitz this early, I figure I can do likewise with my Christmas movie thread(s).


This is the "Classic Christmas Movie" thread - I also have a "Contemporary Christmas Movie" thread HERE.


For the purposes of this thread, please limit yourself to movies released before 1960. (Later films go in the other thread.)

A Christmas Carol, George C. Scott version. Big tradition in my family to watch it the night before Christmas.

not listed, but I enjoy watching the musical version of scrooge with Albert Finny.

This one is an easier choice for me...

A Christmas Carol (1951)

I just never got into "It's a Wonderful Life" although it is a very interesting film.

How about the new (last year) made-for-TV one (all new musical score) with Kelsey Grammer? Anybody else here like that one?
(No, it doesn't belong in this thread, either. Prepares for copious flame...)

I LOVE this version as well...Gabs, the Alisdair Sim version is also very good...

Hardshell, I can't vote. I really like all of them except White Christmas. I LOVE the song, HATE the movie.

Sorry, Bing.

I love "It's A Wonderful Life" - I try to catch it every year.

Of course, I turn it off as soon as he jumps off of the bridge. Everything after that point is an hallucination as he's dying, and I don't need to see that. Up to that point is a very poignant story about what happens when a man tries to live his life for others rather than pursuing his own passions. Ultimately it leads to his destruction.

It's a great movie.
