Holiday Links on Classic Movies

I've seen all sorts of searches for holiday-themed posts in my stats the past couple of weeks, so I thought I'd make it easy and make one big post with my best holiday stuff. So here are the reviews, cartoons and clips on Classic Movies that most get me into the spirit of the season:

Movie Reviews

My two-part review of classic forties Christmas movies is one of my favorites. I love these flicks so much. Part I, Part II

This review of It Happened on 5th Avenue has been popular this year, so here it is again!


I pretty much like this 1948 version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer because the mama reindeer wears a dress and apron and stands on her hind legs all the time. That always cracks me up.

Grampy puts all the DIY bloggers I read to shame in Christmas Comes But Once a Year. Makes me feel like a fool for buying toys.

This jazzy version of Frosty the Snowman is so much fun. Look at those kids dancing around!

Other Favorites

I loved how this post about Thurl Ravenscroft, the deep-voiced vocalist of the You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch song, turned out. I've got to admit I was a bit disappointed that it didn't attract much interest. I mean, this guy was so cool. And he was the voice of Tony the Tiger!

A rather slim Santa Claus visits a pair of turn-of-the-century children in this early example of trick photography.
