Five Friday Faves

These are my all time favorite Holiday films!!

It's A Wonderful Life
This is one of my personal all time favorite movie ever!! This sentimental favorite by Frank Capra, small-town banker George Bailey (James Stewart) contemplates ending it all as his life teeters on the edge of financial ruin.

Miracle On 34th Street

The 1947 holiday classic Miracle on 34th Street is transplanted to the 1990s with few changes in this family-oriented remake. The screenplay by the prolific John Hughes sticks close to the original outline, centering on Macy's executive Dorey Walker.

The Family Stone

A woman meets her future in-laws and discovers they don't much care for her in this comedy from writer and director Thomas Bezucha. Everett Stone (Dermot Mulroney) is a successful young businessman who is dating Meredith Morton (Sarah Jessica Parker).

Polar Express
Starring Tom Hanks and based on the enchanting storybook written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg ('Jumanji'), this Christmas story reaffirms every youngster's need to believe.

Babes In Toyland ~ March of the Wooden Soldiers

March of the Wooden Soldiers is the 1952 reissue title for Hal Roach's 1934 film version of Victor Herbert's Babes in Toyland. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy star as Stannie Dum and Ollie Dee, bumbling apprentices to the master toymaker of Toyland.
