Happy Holidays All,

For those who've never seen this oft-overlooked Christmas classic from 1947, I recommend it most, most highly. Cary Grant, David Niven, Loretta Young - just an outstanding cast. For whatever reason this film is many times not on people's list of must-see holiday films and I've no idea why. I find it far better than "It's A Wonderful Life", and this is no slam on that great classic either.

Check out your various streaming channels, as well as YouTube, and you will find it available on one of them for free I am certain. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas! CT

Thanks for the pointer. Enjoyed the film. I won't compare it with 'It's A Wonderful Life' because they're both good and we need all films of that ilk that we can get.

If we're talking David Niven though, 'A Matter of Life and Death' (released in the US as 'A Stairway to Heaven') is an absolute MUST SEE.

Oh that I was back in the dear old PBI.
With no more Triplanes on me tail, nor tracer tracing by.
And no more flames and clickerty-clack and no more blooming sky,
And only a couple of feet to fall whenever I want to die.
