As my 100th post at OT i`ll post this thread about Christmas movies.

We all watch these movies during the christmas and new year hollidays,so one of them is Miracle on 34th street,i prefer the 1947 original over the 1994 remake cause A sometime remakes stinks and B they always modify some things on those,the part that makes the original better is all the mailbags in court,while the remake has the lame dollar bill bit.

I also like Scroodged with Bill murray,and National Lampoon`s Christmas Vacation.....so what are your favorites.

I don't think I've ever seen that one, Empress. Who's in it?

There's a 1984 Made-For-TV movie I haven't seen in a long time. It's called It Came Upon The Midnight Clear. Mickey Rooney plays Mike Halligan, a retired cop from Manhattan living in California with his family who decides to show his grandson, who has never seen snow before, what a real white Christmas in New York is like. But he dies from a sudden heart attack in which Halligan makes a deal with the Archangel of Heaven to return to Earth for a week until Christmas and show his grandson the seasonal glories of New York City.

Ah, for me it would be...

A Christmas Story (don't forget that it must have "a compass in the stock and a thing that tells time")
Nat'l Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Scrooged
It's a Wonderful Life (always a classic and may Hollywood never try to remake it)
"You fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is 'Never get involved in a land war in Asia'."
