Introduction to Holiday Classics

Share the glow of the Christmas season as TCM celebrates throughout the month of December with a variety of warmhearted movies guaranteed to fill you with the holiday sprit. The yuletide cheer begins on Sunday nights with double features of holiday comedies including two Debbie Reynolds vehicles, Susan Slept Here (1954) and Bundle of Joy (1956); and The Shop Around the Corner (1940) paired with its musical remake, In the Good Old Summertime (1949). Themes range from The Christmas Spirit (Good Sam, 1948) to Holiday Romance (Remember the Night, 1940), Christmas Carols (five different versions of the Dickens classic) and Christmas Kids (Little Women, 1949). Among Robert Osborne's Christmas Eve Picks , TCM host Robert Osborne includes the charming fantasy-romance The Bishop's Wife (1947), with Cary Grant, Loretta Young and David Niven at their brightest.

Overall, the lineup features four TCM premieres: O. Henry's Full House (1952), an anthology with an all-star cast that includes Marilyn Monroe and Charles Laughton; The Holiday (2006), another star-heavy comedy-drama with Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz and Jack Black; Scrooge (1935), with Seymour Hicks as the title character in this rendering of A Christmas Carol; and Sun Valley Serenade (1941), a lively ice-skating musical featuring Sonja Henie and the Glenn Miller Orchestra.
