Last year's post of December 23rd almost could have been written tonight, except that I just finished up work today, not yesterday. Check it out for a number of fun Christmas-related links which are still relevant today.
Here are a few new links for this Christmas:
...At True Classics Carrie describes her love for WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954), which I share.
...Greenbriar Picture Shows has a marvelous multi-part post on WHITE CHRISTMAS and the VistaVision process: Part One and Part Two are up, with more to come. (Update: Here's Part Three, the conclusion.) Lots of fabulous photos! For more on VistaVision, visit 50 Westerns From the 50s.
...Last May Mark at Where Danger Lives posted about CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY (1944), starring Deanna Durbin and Gene Kelly. It was just republished at Movie FanFare.
...Mary McNamara of the L.A. Times describes being tourists with children in London over the Christmas holidays. As much as I'd like to return to London, I'm glad I'm not there right now, with all the weather-related travel delays!
...Susan King of the L.A. Times suggests viewing classic Hollywood comedies at this time of year as an alternative to Christmas movies...although I love Christmas films, I can't argue with her recommendations of movies like EASY LIVING (1937) and IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT (1934).
...For a thoughtful change of pace, visit "Switching Gears as Christmas Nears" by Marcia Morrissey.
Merry Almost Christmas!
