  • Merry Christmas to all!

    One minor nit Grant- the original Thin Man (1934) featured Myrna Loy and Maureen O'Sullivan (not O'hara).

  • We also watch Miracle on 34th Street, with Natalie Wood, Maureen O'Hara, John Payne and Edmund Gwenn, in black and white (the best way to watch it). Note: Edmund Gwenn won a Best Actor in a Supporting Role Oscar for playing Kris Kringle in Miracle on 34th Street.

    We also enjoy watching those "Hallmark Christmas" movies on Netflix.

    And like you, Grant, we enjoy watching the first The Thin Man movie, which takes place over the Christmas holiday. Note, however, that it wasn't Maureen O'Hara that was in that film, but Maureen O'Sullivan. Still, The Thin Man is an incredibly good film even today, given the fact that it was released in 1934.

    I'll mention one more, that isn't a Christmas related movie, but a New Year's Day related movie. The next Thin Man movie starring William Powell and Myrna Loy, is After the Thin Man. This is, in my opinion, the best of the Thin Man movie series starring William Powell and Myrna Loy as Nick and Nora Charles. It takes place over the New Year's Day holiday. And it stars a very young Jimmy Stewart in one of his earliest roles.

    Grant, I agree with Miracle on 34th, I have not watched the others you mentioned.

    I wrote it quickly and wasn't paying attention. You are of course perfectly correct. Love those movies.

  • I would just like to add that if Die Hard is a Christmas film, so is Batman Returns which is on my watch list this Christmas.

    Happy Holidays to everyone!

  • I like to try and watch each of these this time of year:

    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

    A Christmas Story

    Scrooged

    Elf
