Turner Classic Movies: Christmas in the Movies
Turner Classic Movies: Christmas in the Movies: 30 Classics to Celebrate the Season | Jeremy Arnold
4 posts | 2 read
Turner Classic Movies presents a bucket list of the best and most beloved holiday films of all time, complete with spirited commentary, behind-the-scenes stories, and photos spanning eight decades of Christmastime favorites. Nothing brings the spirit of the season into our hearts quite like a great holiday movie. "Christmas films" come in many shapes and sizes and exist across many genres. Some, like It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story, are perennials, while others, such as Die Hard, have only gradually become yuletide favorites. But they all have one thing in common: they use themes evoked by the holiday period - nostalgia, joy, togetherness, dysfunction, commercialism, or cynicism - as a force in their storytelling. !--EndFragment--Turner Classic Movies: Christmas in the Movies showcases the very best among this uniquely spirited strain of cinema. Each film is profiled on what makes it a "Christmas movie," along with behind-the-scenes stories of its production, reception, and legacy. Complemented by a trove of color and black-and-white photos, Turner Classic Movies: Christmas in the Movies is a glorious salute to a collection of the most treasured films of all time. Among the 30 films included: The Shop Around the Corner, Holiday Inn, Meet Me in St. Louis, It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, White Christmas, A Christmas Story, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, Little Women, and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

I loved reading this book. It's a great overview of some well-known and some not so well-known Christmas movies. One one issue is that The Santa Clause us not included. But I'm very happy to add this to not only my books on movies, but to my books in Christmas as well.

Always happy to add to my collection of books about movies, but especially glad when it's a #TCM book. Christmas in the Movies came in after being backordered for 2 months!!! I can't wait to read it 😊. #bookmail #filmlover
