Description
This TCM Greatest Classic Films Set includes these four great films:

A Christmas Carol
Reginald Owen portrays Charles Dickens' holiday humbug Ebenezer Scrooge, the miser's miser who has a huge change of heart after spirits whisk him into the past, present and future. From sets to stars to story, this triumphant adaptation adds a glow to the season. Like Tiny Tim's benediction, it blesses us - every one.

Christmas In Connecticut
A magazine columnist totally devoid of the homemaking skills espoused in her column had better get some fast: her boss has invited himself and a recently returned war hero to her home for Christmas. Laughs, romance, holiday cheer: that's the recipe Barbara Stanwyck and a stellar company follow in this perennial favorite.

It Happened On 5th Avenue
Home for the holidays! GI families hit by the post-World War II housing crunch take over an abandoned New York City mansion.

The Shop Around The Corner
In the third of their four screen pairings, Margaret Sullavan and James Stewart engage in retail romance wrapped in the ribbon of director Ernst Lubitsch's trademark touch of wit and charm. They play bickering store clerks who are unknowingly secret pen pals. Your patronage will be cheerfully rewarded when you watch this enchanting tale.

      Comments about this product:

      Set included not often seen "It Happened on 5th Avenue" and "The Shop Around the Corner", both great films. Also included some great short subjects, especially "A Star in the Night", an absolutely wonderful short about an innkeeper rediscovering the special nature of Christmas.

                      Love the old classic movies, very entertaining, The 1938 Christmas Carol movie was the first time I had seen that version. I really loved it. It was upbeat and did not need the real scary parts as in the other productions. The other 3 movies were excellent.

                              What a great collection of Holiday movies. "A Christmas Carol" with Reginald Owen is a fine adaption of the Dickens classic tale.

                              "Shop Around the Corner" with Jimmy Stewart is certainly an entertaining story.

                              I just discovered "It Happened on 5th Avenue" in December 2012 and it quickly became a favorite.

                              And "Christmas in Connecticut" with Barbara Stanwyck is a kick!

                              Try this set of holiday movies--you can't go wrong.

                                          The video is wonderful. I am very disappointed that this gift arrived several days after Christmas and would have returned it but it was too much trouble to send back and get a credit.

                                            I Love Old Classics so if you really like a classic movie you should definitely get these they are wonderful. It is very worth your money and time.

                                            It's remained a favorite since my childhood. Something about it seems to signal the true spirit of Christmas. The Patrick Stewart version may be more "contemporary," but this version still seems the best given the memories it evokes of many Christmases.
