TV Diary: Sharing favorite Christmas movies

Tuesday, December 25, 2012 - 12:01 am

Merry Christmas, everyone! I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite Christmas movies. They're not listed in any particular order.

•“The Bells of St. Mary's” (1945): Aside from the “Road to” films, this featured Bing Crosby in a melodramatic role.

•“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” (2005): I'm not all that into fantasy movies, but I was in awe of the cinematography and the whole production from beginning to end.

•“Grumpy Old Men” (1993): Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. Need I say any more?

•“The Lemon Drop Kid” (1951): The film introduced us to “Silver Bells,” a classic.

•“Meet John Doe” (1941): Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck are two of my favs. The ending still makes me cry.

•“Home Alone” (1990): One of the funniest movies — ever.

•“A Christmas Carol” (1938): Reginald Owen is Ebenezer Scrooge. Period.

•“It's a Wonderful Life” (1946): One of the most heartwarming movies ever made. Why else would it be on every year?

•“Miracle on 34th Street?” (1947): Edmund Gwenn is Kris Kringle in this classic story of a little girl who doesn't believe in Santa.

•“A Christmas Story” (1983): I triple-dog dare you not to like this film.

•“The Santa Clause” (1994): Tim Allen becomes Santa and finds a way to connect with his son in the process.

•“Scrooged” (1988): Love the all-star cast.
