Movie Reviews

Same movies as the first version plus "The SInging Nun"

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This holiday collection is exactly the same as Warner Bros. Classic Holiday Collection (Boys Town / A Christmas Carol 1938 / Christmas in Connecticut) except The Singing Nun will also be included. Only two of these films have anything to do with Christmas, but Boys Town and The Singing Nun are great family films to have around during the holidays that the whole family can enjoy, and this set is a great way to introduce the youngsters to classic film. The movies have the following extra features:

A Christmas Carol (1938)
Reginald Owen plays Scrooge here rather than Lionel Barrymore, who had been the original choice. He was too ill at the time to perform the role.
2 festive vintage featurettes:
Jackie Cooper's Christmas Party and Judy Garland Sings "Silent Night"
Classic Oscar-nominated Cartoon "Peace on Earth"

Christmas in Connecticut
Barbara Stanwyck writes a column about cooking and housekeeping and tells her readers that she lives on a farm. However, she is actually a very urban New Yorker who knows nothing about farming or cooking. When the owner of the magazine where she works tells her that a sailor will be spending the holidays enjoying her farm and her cooking, she fears she will be found out as a fraud.
Oscar-winning short: Star in the Light

Boys Town has no extra features other than trailers. There have been no announcements yet as to extra features on "The Singing Nun"."
Not really Christmas

"These movies aren't all really Christmas but they are a good watch and a fair price."
