Christmas Classics

To wish all our viewers a joyous holiday season, TCM offers a lineup of classics guaranteed to generate the spirit of Christmas! On Thursdays leading up to Christmas Day we have compiled a collection of seasonal favorites beginning with two starring Barbara Stanwyck (Remember the Night, 1940; and Meet John Doe, 1941) and two with Judy Garland (In the Good Old Summertime, 1949; and Meet Me in St. Louis, 1944).

There's also a quartet of films based on the Dickens classic A Christmas Carol including the celebrated 1938 version with Reginald Owen and the 1970 musical Scrooge, with Albert Finney. Other well-loved yuletide films include Holiday Affair (1949) and Little Women (1933).

Beginning on Tuesday, December 23, and continuing through Christmas Day, is an ongoing array of holiday-themed movies ranging from the comedy It Happened on 5th Avenue (1947) to the sentimental stories All Mine to Give (1957) and Tenth Avenue Angel (1948). On Christmas Eve TCM host Robert Osborne picks such yuletide favorites as The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942) and Christmas in Connecticut (1945).

And what could be jollier than a Christmas Day festival of Mel Brooks comedies? Among the Brooks laugh-fests are High Anxiety (1977), To Be or Not to Be (1983) and The Twelve Chairs (1970). Also screening is a delightful 2006 episode of The Dick Cavett Show featuring an interview with Brooks. In case you find a Jewish funnyman an odd choice to celebrate Christmas, remember that Brooks has said, "Holidays are about spirit, not religion!"
