"Excellent short story and great mini movie. I haven't noticed it on TV in recent years and wanted to purchase it on DVD (my VHS tape wore out). Great for the entire family with a worthy lesson. It's an annual must at our house for Christmas."

"I found this DVD at Kmart for $3. It comes with a cd of Christmas music. I figured for the price I would take a chance.
It was a made for TV movie from 1986 based on the novelette "London Snow". It stars Katherine Helmond, veteran actor Sid Caesar, a very young Melissa Joan Hart, and Kimble Joyner. It won an Emmy in 1987 for cinematography and an ASC award in 1988. It's a nice family movie, but it's only 48 minutes long.
The movie seems to be set in the 1950's. Mrs Mutterance (Helmond)is a widow who runs a candy shop in the lower level of a building where she lives on the 2nd floor with her 2 adopted children (Joyner and Hart). Her mean spirited Landlord, Mr Snyder(Caesar)tells her she has two weeks to vacate the building 2 days before Christmas. After a blizzard, Mr. Snyder turns up missing. Will Mrs. Mutterance be able to find him?
Melissa Joan Hart is very cute in this movie. I thought all of the actors were good, but I thought this presentation fell short of a holiday classic. I think it is a better production than the made for tv movies are today. Well worth the $3 I paid for it."
What a wonderful Christmas Movie!
