Description
Turner Classic Movies, Universal and the Library of Congress are proud to present this new DVD release of Remember the Night (1940), featuring—for the first time—a beautiful transfer in crisp black-and-white from an original negative preserved by the Library of Congress.

Screen icons Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray star in this heartwarming holiday classic, the first of four films to feature the legendary duo. Stanwyck plays a petty shoplifter on trial for swiping jewelry just before Christmas, while MacMurray is the Assistant District Attorney who sends her off to jail then suffers a crisis of conscience and bails her out. When he invites her to join his family for the holidays, a love blossoms between the two that will strain, but ultimately redeem, all parties. Featuring a wonderful supporting cast (Beulah Bondi, Sterling Holloway and Elizabeth Patterson), stylish costumes by Edith Head, a charming script by Preston Sturges and superb direction by Mitchell Leisen, Remember the Night (1940) is a timeless holiday favorite that can be enjoyed in any season.

                  This charmer, especially endearing at Christmas-time, is one of the best acting by Barbara S. The warm scenes with Fred MacMurray's family, seen through B's eyes are truly special.

                  On a personal note, my copy of this is a replacement. I sent the original copy back(defective). It is lost somewhere in the mail, but TCM sent me a replacement WITH APOLOGIES. I'm am now a customer for life.

                  Comments about this product:

                  Remember The Night marked the first time Barbara Stanwyck teamed with Fred MacMurray, years before their memorable turns in Double Indemnity. Stanwyck is a a petty thief/3rd time offender on trial, right before Christmas. MacMurray is an assistant DA who, through a convoluted series of events, arranges to have Stanwyck's sentencing postponed until after the holidays. He winds up taking her for a car trip from New York to Ohio, and they deal with her past and stay with his family. Their relationship holds the film together, despite some of the uneven and frankly bizarre plot twists. Mitchell Leisen directed from a Preston Sturges screenplay, and managed to render the basic story flat and charmless. The principals only make this film watchable.

                        The subject of a young woman who shoplifts jewelry doesn't sound like the beginnings of a wonderful and fun Christmas movie... but it is. It contains all the good things a movie should - it's tragic, funny, fun, enchanting, heartwarming, romantic and touching. It shows how the strength of family love can make a huge difference.

                          This has become a Christmas classic for me; so much heart. I'm surprised I haven't heard of it before, having been a long time fan of Barbara Stanwyck, especially Christmas in Connecticut. For me, this movie is even better. Only purchase TCM's release. Other copies are not of the same quality.

                                          Having already been familier with the talents of the actors, gave this movie that edge of high expectations from this viewer. In this case, they did not disappoint. The story line is one of ethics and sweet romance. It held me waiting for their next move to the very end. I love a story that will do that.

                                            I listened to the audio version all the time and when I found it was a movie-I had to have it! I'm not sorry a bit. I love this movie. It's funny, romantic and it takes place during x-mas. You gotta get this one!

                                              As my family will testify, I am a devoted(short of fanatic)classic movie buff! Thankfully they are following suit! We are all grateful to TCM!!!
